Amazon.com said Wednesday it expects to resume operations today at its Jacksonville fulfillment center, which was closed to determine the effects of Hurricane Irma.
Employees will be compensated fully for time lost because of the hurricane, said spokeswoman Shevaun Brown.
Brown said Tuesday the Amazon Jacksonville facilities temporarily closed operations and customers in the area should expect delays in receiving their Amazon orders while damage to local infrastructure was fully assessed.
It ships small consumer items from the center.
The Seattle-based internet retailer began shipping orders about two weeks ago from the 1,500-job fulfillment center in North Jacksonville at 12900 Pecan Park Road.
Amazon intends to open a 1,000-job Cecil Commerce Center fulfillment center for large items and a Westside Industrial Park sortation center this month.
