Amazon wants to make receiving packages easier for anyone who can’t have them sent directly to their front door with a new delivery service called Hub. Hub serves as a security locker for packages. Located in apartment complexes, residents can give delivery companies a pickup code to access their locker and drop off the package. When the resident returns to their building they can access the locker and take their package, without worrying about missing a delivery.

The first Hub Amazon revealed is called the Starter Hub, a six-foot wide locker system with 42 compartments. Should a residence require more lockers, it can attach an Expander Segment to add another 23 compartments to the existing module.

Amazon has yet to make an official announcement about Hub, but the company created a webpage dedicated to the product providing a brief rundown of the service’s functions and appearance.
