Rencently, Amazon accounced its plan of opening its eighth facility in Florida, a 600,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Temple Terrace. Up to now, Amazon already opened 7 fulfillment centers in Florida.
This new plan is expected to bring 750 jobs to the Tampa Bay area upon completion in 2021. Many jobs will be shipping-related, but Amazon will also hire employees for its human resources, operations management, safety, security, finance and information technology departments.
Roughly 12 miles away, Amazon also has plans for a new delivery station in Lutz, that will similarly open in 2021. The Lutz facility will be used to speed up Amazon's last-mile delivery network for the surrounding Pasco County.
