In order to improve delivery services to the Tampa Bay area, Amazon has increased its footprint.
The newest location is a 100,000-square-foot warehouse in Seffner. Amazon plans for the new site is for items purchased for same-day and overnight delivery. “Same=Day” involves qualifying orders that are over $35, and contain items identified on Amazon.com with “Prime FREE Same-Day.”
This new location opened in June, 2021. It follows the addition of a massive “fulfillment center” Amazon opened in Temple Terrace, spanning 600,000-square-feet.
Amazon, by adding additional warehouses, has cut the time it takes to get products delivered. Having reduced delivery time to a matter of hours is pushing competitors who are also offering delivery. Kroger recently began as a delivery service in Florida.
