Amazon Drop-Off in Store? Or Amazon Lockers?

    We are interested in pursuing Amazon drop-off services at our location. We are a small community college with a residential population. I am having trouble getting connected with someone at Amazon who could possibly help me.  Any ideas?  Is it worth pursuing?
    Thanks,

    Purdue was doing it at one point.  May want to reach out to them?

    This can be a hard one to get traction on. In my case we had Amazon drivers and subcontractors dropping off packages in our mailroom that should have instead been delivered to offices around campus. I ended up searching for contracts Amazon had with other agencies in the state, found one for a neighboring elementary school district, and used the contact information found there to address our concerns.

    It still took a bit of work, but if your state has a database of contracts that might be a way to go for an initial contact at least. The folks in our purchasing department helped me sniff out the one I used so your purchasing folks could be a resource on that front too.

    I would suggest Amazon locker installation.  We had them installed on our residential campus and the locker has reduced the work load for our student mail operation and the students like the 24/7 access for package delivery and pick-up.  It took some effort to get them installed but well worth the work.  If you want to discuss feel free to contact me.
