Amazon has expanded into North Las Vegas with a new robotic fulfillment center. The facility will service a large region, bringing faster deliveries to general and enterprise consumers.
It is not known how many products will be processed through the facility, but the state-of-the-art technology should ensure millions are served per year.
Part of a wider plan of expansion, the facility will help Amazon maintain its high standards in the quality and speed of deliveries.
Of course, business are happy as this should reduce costs for sending and receiving. It is seen as further proof that Las Vegas is growing beyond its start as a tourist destination, and is being recognized as a business center.
But the facility is also providing jobs. Some grumble that the automation will greatly reduce its impact on the local economy, but all jobs are a big benefit.
