LA VERGNE, TN (WSMV) – A new Amazon middle mile sorting center will be coming to La Vergne.

This will be Amazon’s 13th facility in the Greater Nashville area. To date, Amazon has already employed nearly 13,000 people with thousands more positions to be filled by the end of 2021. 

The city announced the building will be coming to Park 24 off Bain Drive and Mason Road and will be 256,000 square feet. The sorting center will be responsible for sorting packages before being transferred to a delivery station or last-mile delivery partner for final delivery for customers.

The center brings with it nearly 1,100 new jobs and is hiring both new full-time and part-time associate jobs. The roles all pay at least $15 per hour.
