From Bloomberg:

The reason for the odd placement, according to experts and people with direct knowledge of Amazon’s operations, is to take advantage of the handsets’ proximity to the station, combined with software that constantly monitors Amazon’s dispatch network, to get a split-second jump on competing drivers.

This is a bit wild, but I totally get it. If a system exists, someone is out there trying to game it.
