The facility will open with five employees. More employees will possibly be added to the workforce as necessary to meet customer demand, Miller said.

"The site was chosen because of its ease of access to major highways, proximity to customers' distribution centres and a strong local community workforce for recruiting employees," she said.

The new facility is part of a network expansion by the company to boost the number of packages that can be delivered and the speed they can reach customers, she added.

Since 2005, the company has opened 17 new hubs and expanded or relocated more than 500 facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
