Amazon.com plans to open a one-million-square-foot fulfillment center in Deltona, Fla., the company said Thursday.
The center will create more than 500 full-time jobs, where employees will pick, pack, and ship large items, such as sports equipment, patio furniture, bicycles, and household goods, the company said. The central Florida facility will become part of a larger fulfillment network in the state that includes centers in Orlando, Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville.
Amazon did not say when the Deltona facility will open.
The retailer has invested more than $5 billion in Florida since 2013, company officials also said.
