Amazon announces second fulfilment centre in Mississippi

Amazon.com has revealed plans for its second Mississippi fulfillment centre, to be located in DeSoto County.

“Mississippi has proven itself to be a great place for Amazon to do business and gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers in the region,” said Alicia Boler Davis, Amazon’s vice president of global customer fulfillment. “We are excited about our growth and remain committed to creating a positive economic impact in the region with job opportunities that have great pay and benefits.”

Associates at the more than one million-square-foot fulfillment centre will pick, pack and ship large customer items, such as sports equipment, patio furniture, fishing rods, pet food, kayaks, bicycles, and larger household goods.

“Amazon’s decision to locate a second fulfillment centre in North Mississippi is a tremendous milestone for DeSoto County and our entire state,” Governor Phil Bryant said. “This announcement serves as a shining example to industry leaders around the globe that Mississippi plays to win. We offer a supportive business climate and integrated transportation network so companies with shipping needs, such as Amazon, can reach their customers in rapid time and remain a step ahead of their competition.”

“In just 10 months, Amazon has announced two Mississippi locations creating 1,300 jobs for the people of North Mississippi. Amazon’s new DeSoto County location is evidence of the fact that the Mississippi team works together to support extraordinary companies, enabling them to achieve their goals in our state,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr.
