The Home Depot Opens Dallas, Texas, Distribution Hub
Ultimately, the company's supply chain footprint in the Dallas-Fort Worth area will grow from 2.1 million square feet to 4.5 million square feet and will create approximately 1,500 new jobs by the end of this year. The company currently operates twenty distribution centers in the state.
"We're focused on creating an easier and more convenient shopping experience for our customers' home improvement needs, whether they shop in stores or online," said Stephanie Smith, senior vice president of supply chain for The Home Depot. "Our supply chain is the foundation for delivering on our Pro and DIY customers' changing expectations, which is why we're investing to offer same day and next day delivery to 90 percent of the U.S. population."
The distribution center is designed to meet customers' delivery needs through multiple channels, whether delivering items directly to customers' homes or for pickup at local stores, company officials noted. The company's newest Dallas supply chain site also manages customer delivery and installation of large appliances such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators ordered in stores or online.
The new facility features a zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell charging station, a sustainable and more efficient way to power material handling equipment. It also includes more than six miles of mechanized lines and other automation technologies that enable increased product flow.
