RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Amazon is bringing a new facility to the city of Richmond.
The specialty fulfillment and last-mile delivery center, which will be located on the I-95 Logistics Center site, will add 150 new jobs.
“The new fulfillment and delivery center in the City of Richmond will create additional 21st-century job opportunities and help advance Virginia’s position as a leader in the supply chain management industry.
