The warehouse and distribution hub will be company's fourth in Georgia, according to a news release from Gov. Nathan Deal's office. The announcement comes as Georgia is also in the hunt for Amazon's second headquarters, a 50,000-job bonanza sought by more than 200 cities across North America.
“Amazon’s continued investment in our state speaks to our dedication to improve, expand and modernize Georgia’s logistics and distribution network,” Deal said in the release. “As a top national distribution hub, suppliers can reach 80 percent of the U.S. population from Georgia in just a 2-day truck drive or a 2-hour flight.”
