CARTERET, N.J. (AP) - Amazon says it expects two new fulfillment centers being built in New Jersey to open in the fall.

Company spokesman Aaron Toso tells NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1W1JoGV ) they plan on promoting the beginning of the hiring process once the jobs are posted. Updates will also be available online.

Amazon plans to build an 800,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Carteret, where it already operates a warehouse with more than 500 workers. The new facility would employ more than 1,500.

A second new warehouse planned in Florence will be 600,000 square feet and employ more than 500.

The online retail giant already operates three fulfillment centers in the state with more than 5,000 workers. The company has said increasing demand prompted the latest expansion.

The new facilities are meant to provide customers with speedy deliveries.
