(ChainStorage.com) Amazon will open a 600,000 sq. ft., robotics-based fulfillment center in Spokane, its first facility in Eastern Washington. Amazon currently employs more than 50,000 people across the state at its headquarters in Seattle, and facilities supporting customer fulfillment in DuPont, Kent and Sumner.
The new fulfillment center, which is expected to open in late 2019, will employ more than 1,500 full-time associates who will engage with Amazon Robotics to complete operations. The robotics technology will assist employees as they pick, pack and ship items, such as games, housewares, school supplies and pet toys.
