Amazon Fulfillment Center, Suffolk
Amazon Launches Robotics Fulfillment and Processing Centers of the Future
In 2020, Amazon announced two new operations facilities in Hampton Roads. The e-commerce giant selected Suffolk for a $230 million, state-of-the-art robotics fulfillment center in Northgate Commerce Park—the first of its kind in Virginia. The facility has an overall square footage of more than 3.8 million, representing the second-largest building in the state, and employs more than 1,500 working alongside robots to pack, and ship customer orders. Amazon also established a $50 million, 650,000-square-foot import processing center in the City of Chesapeake that employs 500. Both facilities officially launched in 2022.
