WCN Editorial Team 1 Aug 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

US-based home improvement retailer Lowe's Companies has unveiled plans to develop a new $100M direct fulfilment centre in Robertson County, Tennessee.


The 102,000sq m centre will ship parcels directly to Lowe’s customers and stores nationwide.

Lowe’s chief supply chain officer Brent Kirby said: “We’re continually working to make doing business with Lowe’s easier for customers.

“Investing to build a new fulfilment centre — the first of its kind for Lowe’s — allows us to offer customers more products online, consolidate multiple parcel shipments and ship purchases directly to customers faster and more efficiently.

“The Nashville area was chosen due to its existing large shipping hubs, access to interstate roadways and well-skilled workforce.”

Scheduled to be operational by the third quarter of 2018, the facility will initially employ about 400 people, reaching 600 by 2022.
