Has anyone ordered anything from Amazon while on the road to have it delivered to an Amazon locker near a location your trip plan has you passing through?

How well did this work for you? Is it a viable option for ordering from Amazon? If this has been tried and it didn't work out, will companies allow a driver to have orders sent to a company terminal?

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I have never ordered anything from Amazon. I know right? I've talked to a couple of drivers that had and they were happy with it.

I was in a truck stop, it was either a TA, Petro, Flying J, Pilot, Loves, Quick Trip, Sinclair, or Road Ranger don't remember which but they had the Amazon locker upfront so some people must make it work.

We are 'loyal' Amazonians, and in asking Tom; he's seen the 'lockers' logo at many 'larger city' places he fuels; ie: CMH and CLE.

Should work!

Amazon lockers work great and there are more around than most people realize, because they’ll also ship stuff to stores for you too, around here it’s Rite Aids that they’ll ship to and you can just walk in and pick up your box from the cashier-store shipping works good for the big packages. I literally have twenty locations less than ten miles from my house, and more keep popping up-alway surprised how many gas stations I deliver to have lockers.

I used an Amazon locker one time just to see how it would work. It was kind of cool. I felt like I was on a cloak-and-dagger mission. rofl-3.gif
