Amazon Expands Prime Hub in Chicago After New Investment
Amazon’s recent investment will allow for faster shipments through the air. The online retailer is investing in a hub for its Prime shipping program at the Chicago Rockford International Airport. The 120,000 square foot expansion will allow Amazon to nearly double jobs at the airport and improve shipping and delivery times. Rockford is located to the west of Chicago and employs thousands of Amazon workers.
Rockford has worked to steadily add jobs in recent years. And now, the Amazon expansion may add up to another 300 jobs to the local economy when it rolls out in July 2019.
