Nike's New Distribution Facility

I just ordered the new Ordem 3 soccer ball from Nike.  In tracking the shipment, I noticed that it's coming from Nike's newly expanded distribution facility in Memphis, located at 3100 New Frayser Blvd, Memphis, TN 38128.  The expansion cost $301 million and makes the facility Nike's largest distribution center in the world.  The facility just opened on June 26, 2015 and is 2.8 million square feet (49 football fields).  It holds footwear, apparel and equipment and has 33 miles of conveyor belts,  96 receiving "spurs," and 73 outbound doors.  It operates 24x7.
