Amazon Opens Third Kansas Facility

Amazon has opened a third fulfillment center in Kansas. Currently, 200,000 packages daily are boxed and shipped from the new 850,000 square foot facility in Kansas City. Several hundred robots work the warehouse floor, but Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer touts the 2,000 full-time workers – and an additional 1,000 through holiday seasons – that the fulfillment center employs.

The deal to bring the fulfillment center to Kansas City was put together while Sam Brownback was governor. Operations at the facility began in August last year. Colyer says he’s not concerned about the looming Sprint, T-Mobile merger, which stands to impact the near 6,000 current Sprint employees at the Overland Park campus. He believes it will create jobs in the Kansas City area.
