Amazon to Build Dallas Warehouse for Small-Item Fulfillment

Amazon.com will open a new fulfillment center in Texas. The Dallas warehouse will be its fourth in the state, the others are located in Coppell, Haslet, and Schertz.

The new 500,000 square-foot fulfillment center will process smaller items, such as books, electronics, and consumer goods.

In April, Amazon.com CFO Tom Szkutak told analysts Amazon closed 2014 with 109 Fulfillment Centers. And in May, Amazon announced plans to open a new fulfillment center in New Jersey. The 1 million square-foot fulfillment center will be located in Carteret, bringing Amazon’s total footprint in New Jersey to more than 2.5 million-square-feet.

Amazon also announced last month plans to build a new fulfillment center in the UK in Dunstable, north of London. That warehouse will be 310,000 square feet, creating 500 permanent new jobs. It’s the ninth in the UK.

This week Amazon said it has invested more than $400 million in Texas and created over 3,500 full-time jobs in the state. The Dallas project is being developed in a joint venture between Clarion Partners and Trammell Crow Company.
