Amazon plans to launch a new, state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Madison County, Miss.
In the 700,000-sq.-ft. robotics fulfillment center, Amazon associates will pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics and toys. The e-tailer says it will create more than 1,000 new, full-time jobs. The project is being developed by Trammell Crow Company.
This fulfillment center will be the first facility located in the Magnolia State to feature Amazon’s robotics technology. However, the company debuted its first facility in Mississippi in Byhalia in 2019, and a new fulfilment center in August 2020 in Olive Branch.
“Mississippi is a great state for business and gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers in the region,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon VP of global customer fulfillment. “We are excited for our future in the Magnolia State, and for what this means for our customers as we continue to grow. We’d also like to thank local and state leaders for their strong support in making this project possible.”
According to Amazon, there are more than 7,500 authors, small and medium-sized businesses, and developers in Mississippi utilizing its products and services.
