Amazon.com will open its 10th California fulfillment center in Sacramento, the fourth time the company has announced a new center over the past four months.
According to the company, the 855,000-plus-square-foot facility will focus on shipping smaller items such as books, electronics and toys.
In addition to the recently announced fulfillment centers in north Sacramento, Tracy and Eastvale, Amazon currently operates California fulfillment centers in Moreno Valley, Patterson, Redlands, Rialto, San Bernardino and Tracy. The company also operates sortation centers in Newark and San Bernardino.
“Our ongoing expansion in California, which started just four short years ago, is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce in this state,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vp/North American operations. “Customers are seeing on a regular basis Amazon’s customer obsession, innovative culture, and operational excellence, all of which is driven by the 14,000-plus Californians who work in Amazon fulfillment centers across the state. We are incredibly proud of what has been accomplished in California.”
