Home Depot Opens
Dallas-Fort Worth Distribution
February 4, 2021
Home Depot has opened a new distribution center in Dallas to fulfill online
orders and store orders. The 1.5 million square-foot distribution center is
designed to meet customers' delivery needs through multiple channels, whether
delivering items directly to customers' homes or for pickup at local stores.
The company's newest Dallas supply chain site also manages customer delivery and
installation of large appliances such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators
ordered in stores or online. From final sale to removal of old appliances, the
operation offers an improved purchase and delivery experience for Home Depot
customers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
"We're focused on creating an easier and more convenient shopping experience for
our customers' home improvement needs, whether they shop in stores or online,"
said Stephanie Smith, senior vice president of supply chain for The Home Depot.
"Our supply chain is the foundation for delivering on our Pro and DIY customers'
changing expectations, which is why we're investing to offer same day and next
day delivery to 90 percent of the U.S. population."
Dallas-Fort Worth market is a key hub for The Home Depot's delivery and supply
chain strategy. Early last year, the company opened another delivery center at
the new Dallas campus that delivers building materials and other bulky products
directly to DIY and Pro customers when and where they need it, all within the
same day or the next day of ordering.
The new facility features a
zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell charging station — a sustainable and more
efficient way to power material handling equipment. It also includes more than
six miles of mechanized lines and other automation technologies that enable
increased product flow.
The facility is part of the company's $1.2 billion investment to expand its
national distribution and delivery network. Ultimately, the company's supply
chain footprint in the Dallas-Fort Worth area will grow from 2.1 million square
feet to 4.5 million square feet and will create approximately 1,500 new jobs by
the end of this year. The company currently operates 20 distribution centers in
