Fulfilment centre, which is anticipated to launch in 2021, will create over 1,000 new full-time jobs
Amazon.com, Inc. has announced plans to open its first fulfilment centre in Little Rock, Arkansas. The new fulfilment centre, which is anticipated to launch in 2021, will create over 1,000 new full-time jobs with industry leading pay and comprehensive benefits starting on day one.
In the new 76,645 m2 fulfilment centre, Amazon employees will work alongside Amazon robotics to pick, pack and ship small items to customers such as books, electronics and toys. The site, which is anticipated to launch in 2021, will create over 1,000 new full-time jobs.
Amazon is also planning a new 7,900 m2 delivery station which is anticipated to launch in late 2020. Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order fulfilment process. Packages are transported to delivery stations from Amazon fulfilment and sortation centres, and then loaded into vehicles for delivery to customers. The delivery station will create hundreds of permanent, full-time and part-time jobs, in addition to offering entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own small business delivering Amazon packages, and independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex.
