Amazon opening 11 supply chain sites in Phoenix

Amazon is opening facilities across the Phoenix metro area to support customer fulfillment and delivery operations.

The e-tail titan expects the 11 new sites to be open by the end of 2020 and create more than 3,000 new full- and part-time jobs. Amazon previously announced it will expand an existing tech hub in Phoenix.

The new sites include seven delivery stations and two additional facilities that support fulfillment operations in the Arizona communities of Avondale, Chandler, Goodyear, Mesa, Phoenix, and Tempe. Delivery stations support the last mile of Amazon’s order fulfillment process.

Amazon’s first cross-dock facility in the state is also slated to open by year’s end in Phoenix with 1,000 full-time positions. The 600,000-sq.-ft. building will support customer fulfillment by receiving large orders of inventory and redistributing products to fulfillment centers across the company’s operations network.

Construction is also underway on an 855,000-sq.-ft. fulfillment center in Goodyear, where employees will work alongside Amazon robotics to pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics and toys. The site, expected to launch by the end of the year, will create more than 1,000 new full-time jobs.

In 2021, Amazon will launch additional sites to support customer fulfillment and operations, including a cross-dock facility in Goodyear and a delivery station in Surprise, Ariz., creating more than 1,000 full-time jobs in the West Valley.

“We’re proud to be growing in the Phoenix metro area, where we opened our first fulfillment center in the state more than 13 years ago with just 300 full-time employees. We now have more than 17,500 full- and part-time Amazon employees who call Arizona home,” said Matthew High, regional director, Amazon Fulfillment.

Amazon’s facilities all follow health and safety protocols, including social distancing guidelines.
