Amazon to open new Dallas fulfillment center


They say everything is bigger in Texas, and that also applies to’s distribution network.

The digital retailing giant plans to open a sixth Texas fulfillment center in Haslet, making it the fourth Amazon fulfillment center in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Amazon currently employs more than 8,000 full-time hourly associates at its Texas fulfillment centers and plans to create 1,000 more full-time positions in the new Haslet facility when it opens.

Employees at the 1 million square-foot Fort Worth fulfillment center will pick, pack, and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and toys.

In addition to an existing Haslet facility, which began shipping customer orders in 2013, Amazon’s other Texas fulfillment centers are located in Coppell, southern Dallas and Schertz, with a fifth currently under construction in San Marcos. Amazon also operates three sortation centers in Texas, located in Irving, Houston and San Antonio.

“We are excited to add another fulfillment center to the Dallas-Fort Worth region and to create additional full-time jobs with great pay and benefits,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s VP of North American operations. “We are appreciative of the community, not just in Haslet but the entire Dallas area for its support of Amazon, its top-notch workforce and the customers who enable us to continually grow across the country.”

Amazon reportedly operates nearly 100 fulfillment centers across the U.S. In March 2016, the retailer announced it would open similar centers in Edgerton, Kansas and San Bernadino, California.
