Amazon plans to hire 800 more employees for N.J. distribution center

Amazon is planning to hire another 800 employees for its 1.2 million-square-foot distribution center in Robbinsville, Mercer County, reports.

The facility, which opened at the Matrix Business Park in July 2014, has already employed more than 1,500 people. 

Mercer County and Robbinsville officials partnered with the Greater Mercer Transportation Management Association to introduce the Z-line, a free shuttle service from the Hamilton Marketplace on Route 130 to the business park, as a way to get people from elsewhere in the county -- especially Trenton -- to jobs at the facility.

In a statement, Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes said that 30,000 trips have been made on the Z-line, with a survey revealing that 96 percent of respondents were pleased with the service.
