“There is undeveloped land all around,” he said.
Petropulous said the new facility would operate with about 70 employees, and up to 470 drivers working at various shifts throughout a typical day to bring packages, in, sort, and load up trucks for delivery.
“It’s a sort facility,” he said, “and everything is done on the ground.”
That includes tractor trailers coming and going between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m., then employees sorting packages from 4 to 8 a.m.
Drivers then come, have their trucks loaded, and go out to do their routes.
Petropulous said during regular business hours the operation is “low key” occupancy, but it’s a 24/7 business.
There could be upward of 600 parking spaces on the property.
The plan comes close to town wetlands and Petropulous said the plan includes proper buffers, including tree lines being planted and other environmental procedures to keep any impacted areas safe.
