Amazon Hub Package Lockers Launched at US Multifamily Properties
Apartment owners such as AvalonBay Communities Inc., Equity Residential, Greystar and Bozzuto Group are signing agreements with Amazon to install delivery-locker systems in thousands of properties across the U.S. The push is on to have Amazon Hub lockers in place before the peak holiday shopping season.
The move allows multifamily property owners to better manage what’s become a major problem: that of deliveries clogging up lobbies and leasing offices. It could also help Amazon control how goods get from distribution centers to customers, which could provide Amazon cost benefits associated with delivering larger loads of packages to a single destination.
So far, the deals to begin installing Amazon Hubs involve apartment owners and managers that control more than 850,000 units across the U.S. The shift to a fully-automated system would allow residents 24-hour access.
