CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Members of the media and others attending the ribbon cutting for the million-square-foot Amazon Fulfillment Center in Canton last week were given a tour of the massive facility.
They say it’s the first Amazon non-sort facility in northeast Ohio.
That’s a reference to items not easily moved along a conveyor belt with robots, so there’s a lot of manual labor moving boxes.
That’s even though many employees drive lift trucks that “pick” the items off the 30-foot high shelves.
The center is already up to its projected 1000 employees.
