BALTIMORE (AP) - Amazon is opening its new fulfillment center in Baltimore.

A ceremony was held Tuesday morning at the 1 million square-foot fulfillment center on Broening Highway.

The Baltimore Sun (https://bsun.md/1RcizKC ) reported this summer that more than 2,500 people had been hired for full-time positions at the center. When plans for the center were announced in 2013, Amazon said it would employ about 1,000 people who would fill orders for across the Mid-Atlantic region.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake planned to attend the opening along with Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger and Business and Economic Development Secretary Mike Gill.
