Amazon is expanding in Maryland — again. The online retailing giant has leased a third warehouse at Tradepoint Atlantic with plans to run a last-mile operation out of the former Sparrows Point steel mill site. The 520,000-square-foot “sort center” is still under development and will open in the fall, said Emily Hawkins, an Amazon spokeswoman in Maryland. Such centers are a part of the new generation of Amazon’s operations in the state. There, orders are parsed out by final destination and consolidated onto trucks, allowing for fast, often same-day deliveries.
