Ruskin, FL – It was just seven months ago the Amazon Fulfillment Center based in Ruskin, FL completed construction and shipped its first package. Now Amazon has green lighted the expansion of the already one million square foot fulfillment center, doubling the centers operational size. With expansion construction already started, Amazon will be adding more jobs to the 1000+ employees it has currently. This area was once a place where cattle roamed and people had no reason to move here, but now the South Shore area is now bustling with growth. The fulfillment center is located south of Big Bend Road, west of I-75, on 355 NE 30th Street, Ruskin FL

This popular area is close to all major highways and I-75 which is great for the daily commuters to MacDill Air Force Base and to Tampa.
