Amazon to open third fulfillment centre in Portland
Sep '17
Amazon.com plans to open its third Oregon fulfillment centre in Portland, which will create more than 1,000 full-time positions. Employees at the one million square foot centre will pick, pack and ship larger customer items, such as sports equipment, gardening tools, and pet food. The project is being developed by Trammell Crow Company and Clarion Partners.

The company recently announced an upcoming fulfillment centre in Troutdale and Salem, in addition to the existing sortation centre in Hillsboro and Prime Now hub in Portland. With the three upcoming fulfillment centres, Amazon will employ more than 3,500 full-time fulfillment associates across the state when all locations open starting in 2018.

“We announced our second fulfillment centre in late August and today it’s exciting to announce our third fulfillment centre in Oregon,” said Sanjay Shah, Amazon’s vice president of North America Customer Fulfillment. “Our quick growth in the Beaver state is our drive to continue growing and innovating on behalf of customers. Fulfillment centres in the state will increase speed of delivery, expand inventory selection, and provide great Prime membership benefits. We are excited to better serve customers, and create 3,500 full-time jobs in Oregon.”

“Amazon has embraced the value of our region as a great business environment, and we welcome the 1,000 quality jobs and benefits this new facility brings to Portland,” said Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler. “Portland’s innovation and talented workforce is a perfect match for Amazon’s cutting-edge approach to customer service and support.”

“Amazon’s continued growth in our region is a good signal for Oregon’s economic growth,” said Keith Leavitt, chief commercial officer at the Port of Portland. “We’re excited to work with Amazon to create more job opportunities in Portland and build on this momentum.”

"Three Amazon fulfillment centres announced in three months adds to the company's already robust presence in Oregon, which includes Amazon Web Services, Prime Now, and sortation centres," said Business Oregon director Chris Harder. "Amazon could invest anywhere in the world, and they are showing over and over again that they believe Oregon is the place to build, innovate, and grow." (SV)
