Amazon sortation center to bring hundreds of new jobs to Mobile
Online retail giant Amazon.com will open a sortation center in the Mobile area later this year, adding hundreds of jobs at the company’s first facility in Alabama.
“We look forward to creating hundreds of jobs to help us better serve customers in Mobile County and throughout Alabama,” said spokeswoman Ashley Robinson.
Sortation centers are different from Amazon’s fulfillment centers, where customer orders are picked, packed, and shipped. Those orders then flow to sortation centers, where associates sort customer packages by zip code to allow for faster and expanded delivery options, such as Sunday delivery and later purchase cut-off times.
