Amazon has announced a new delivery solution called ‘Hub’ for apartment buildings which allows packages delivered to safe lockers in residential buildings without porters.
Some of the nation’s largest residential property owners and managers have signed up to the scheme, including AvalonBay, Fairfield Residential, Pinnacle, JP Morgan Asset Management, WinnResidential, and Equity Residential.
Patrick Supanc, director of Amazon’s lockers business, said: “We’re always striving to make things easier for our customers. Building on Amazon’s expertise in locker solutions, the ‘Hub’ addresses frustrations from property owners, carriers and residents concerning package delivery.
“It simplifies delivery for residents, offering quick and secure access to packages, day or night. For delivery providers, it offers a single, convenient location for package drop-off and gives property managers time and resources back to focus on other priorities.”
