Amazon continues to bolster distribution fleet


Amazon is preparing to expand its fulfillment capabilities in Georgia.

The online giant will open a new 850,000-sq.-ft. distribution center in Jefferson, Georgia. The facility will employ 1,000 full-time employees. The fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship large items, including household furniture, sporting equipment and gardening tools, among other merchandise. The facility will be the second in Georgia’s Jackson County, and the fourth in the state.

“Georgia has been a great place to do business for Amazon, and we look forward to adding a new fulfillment center to better serve our customers in the region,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s VP of North American operations.
