Amazon has officially launched its newest delivery station in Las Vegas at 650 E Owens Ave, North Las Vegas. The new 147,000 square foot delivery station has created hundreds of new jobs locally and is the third delivery station in the Las Vegas Valley.
“This delivery station allows Amazon to continue to better serve customers in Las Vegas while being able to support our local community with quality career opportunities. It’s important that we are a positive addition to the neighborhood and are fully integrated into the communities in which we operate.”Daryl Desimone, Amazon Site Lead
Amazon Delivery Station Features Mural
This is the first Amazon operations site in the state to commission a local artist to create a mural on its exterior walls. Jerry Misko, one of Las Vegas’ most prolific muralists, is a Las Vegas born artist with a unique talent of translating the famous neon lights of The Strip into paintings and murals.
His mural, “Aurora,” is a combination of abstract neon colors, desert flora, fossil fauna depictions, desert animals, and geometric elements.
“This mural was really exciting for me to be able to create. It’s located at the gateway to North Las Vegas and is right on LVB where locals pass by it daily. It’s the largest mural I’ve created at approximately 5,000 square feet and took more than 400 hours to complete. I’m really humbled that Amazon and the City of North Las Vegas chose me to be a part of this project and I’m proud to have been a small part in beautifying our city.”Jerry Misko, Artist
Amazon Investment in Las Vegas and Nevada
This delivery station is Amazon’s 13th operations site in Nevada with additional locations in Las Vegas, Henderson, and Reno. Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order process and help speed up deliveries for customers.
Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighboring Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers, loaded into delivery vehicles, and delivered to customers.
Delivery stations offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex.
This station currently works with four Delivery Service Partners. This location also features an Amazon Hub Lockers+ onsite which offers customers a fast, safe and convenient way to pick up or return items purchased on Amazon.com.
Amazon leverages its scale to help support local communities. Since 2010, Amazon has invested more than $6 billion in Nevada and since beginning operations in the state in March 1999, Amazon has created more than 21,000 jobs in Nevada in its operations, logistics, corporate and technology functions.
The company announced plans for the Las Vegas Delivery station last December.
