Amazon’s new delivery station in Port Wentworth is officially open for business. Amazon welcomed associates inside the 117,000 square-foot building for the first time this month to celebrate its Day 1 of operation. The delivery station has already created over 50 new full-time jobs paying at least $15 per hour with comprehensive benefits packages.
Additionally, the delivery station empowers six small businesses via Amazon’s Delivery Service Partner program, creating hundreds of full-time driver jobs. For independent contractors who want the flexibility to be their own boss and make their own schedule, there are also driver opportunities for Amazon Flex participants.

As a part of the opening celebration, Amazon donated school supplies to Effingham County school district including backpacks, notebook paper, pencils, markers, tissue, hand sanitizer and gloves.
