Amazon is growing its Hub parcel pickup network.
Amazon has announced the expansion, with the Amazon Hub network being rolled out in Perth, WA as well as adding over a hundred locations across Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Research conducted by Amazon Australia found that one in five Australians don’t have a secure location to receive parcels.
Craig Fuller, the Director of Operations of Amazon Australia, says that Australians are changing the way they shop.
“Last year most of us spent more time at home than ever before, with nearly half of Australians also increasing their online shopping habits,” Craig says. “We expect our expanded Amazon Hub network of more than 750 locations will be welcomed for the choice and convenience it offers, and we are pleased to be able to extend this network to our West Australian customers.”
Originally launched in 2019, the Amazon Hub network now has locations all over the country, enabling customers to pick up their parcels from secure, convenient locations such as shopping centres and banks.
Now covering more than 750 locations nationally, Craig says that changes to living and working conditions have also been a factor in the increase of online shopping.
“Many of us are now returning to the office on a full or part time basis and have less consistency about when we will be home,” he says.
