The 930,446-square-foot warehouse covers 22 acres of land, the equivalent of nine average city square blocks, and could fit 19 football fields under its roof. The entire complex encompasses 109.14 acres. Approximately 30,000 tractor trailers will arrive and depart the distribution center annually, each spending an average of just 18 minutes between arrival and departure.
