Rickenbacker picks up Amazon fulfillment delivery

Amazon.com has announced plans to build a 1m sq ft fulfillment centre in the Rickenbacker Global Logistics Park which also serves the nearby US airport with big freighter aircraft ambitions.
The online retail giant’s decision to locate in the ‘Buckeye State’ of Ohio as part of the Rickenbacker Inland Port cluster has been welcomed by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority.
Elaine Roberts, president and chief executive of the airport authority, said: "Amazon selected a prime location for their fulfillment centre. By locating in a high-speed, multimodal logistics hub that’s within a day’s drive to nearly half of the US population, Amazon will have the geographical advantage to keep worldwide customers very happy with unrivaled speed to market and last-mile service.”
The new fulfillment centre at Rickenbacker is expected to be ready in the third quarter of 2016. Amazon also plans to build an additional 800,000 sq ft fulfillment center in Etna, Ohio.
