Amazon said Tuesday it would open two new fulfillment centers and a delivery station in San Antonio, adding more than two million square feet to its footprint in the Alamo City. The new operations facilities will together employ more than 1,500 workers full-time.
In the new one-million-square-foot fulfillment center, expected to launch in 2021, Amazon associates will work to pick, pack, and ship bulky or larger-sized items. Additionally, in the new 750,000-square-foot robotics fulfillment center, expected to launch in 2022, Amazon associates will work to pick, pack and ship smaller products.
Amazon is also planning a new 350,000-square-foot delivery station located at 8210 Aviation Landing. It’s expected to launch in 2021.
“We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from local and state leaders and look forward to creating over 1,500 new, full-time jobs for the San Antonio community,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s VP of global customer fulfillment.
