New apartment locker product from Amazon called The Hub

Amazon has launched a new delivery locker product, called “the Hub,” for apartment buildings so residents can securely receive bulky packages and pick them up at convenient times for the tenants, according to Amazon.

Amazon is promoting the service saying, “It’s your package. Pick it up on your schedule.”

The pitch to property managers to focus on residents

Amazon is pitching the lockers to apartment owners and property managers saying, ”Your residents will thank you.

“Accepting deliveries from all carriers, Hub by Amazon can free you and your staff from daily package management.  It’s convenient and easy to use, making the Hub an amenity your residents will love.

“Self-service delivery and trusted customer support come together to create a solution you can count on,” the company says.

Hub by Amazon is your fast and easy way to receive packages from anyone, according to the company.

  • Just ship to your home address
  • Always open
  • Pick it up any time - The Hub keeps your package safe and sound
  • Convenient - Located at your residence, making getting your packages a breeze

Configured for your apartment property

New apartment locker product from Amazon called The Hub

Indoor and outdoor Hubs are available, starting at 6’ wide. Choose from three neutral colors that blend seamlessly with your property, the company says.

The Hub appears to be a development on a service that Amazon has been running for several years now called Amazon Lockers, parcel delivery lockers that are located in public places and retailers to make delivering and picking up Amazon parcels more efficient, according to techcrunch.com.

Significantly, both the Lockers and now these Hubs underscore a bigger ambition that Amazon has to lock in a segment of the logistics and delivery chain that has largely been out of its hands: last-mile (and even more specifically last-feet) delivery.

The company says on its website that “Hub by Amazon is a modular system that can be easily installed at a variety of properties.”

The first module is the Starter Hub, a 6 ft. wide system with 42 compartments. The second module is the Expander Segment which you can use to add 23 more compartments. The modules link to each other to provide the right capacity for your property’s needs. See more details here.

“All compartment sizes and layouts are pre-configured, so there’s no need to guess what type of compartments you’ll need,” the company says.
