US last mile delivery specialists LaserShip have opened a new, 40,000 square foot hub in Durham, North Carolina.

Capable of handling up to 14,000 packages an hour, the site already has 15 full time jobs with plans to hire a further 22 more staff. This is part of plans to reach 400 new tip codes and two million new customers in NC. It also has an 87,000 square foot hub in Charlotte.

“We’re very proud to open our new branch in Durham and further our investment and commitment in North Carolina,” said Josh Dinneen, Senior Vice President of Commercial Development at LaserShip. “Our Durham branch will help us meet unprecedented levels of e-commerce demand and better serve our customers with faster, more affordable, and reliable delivery. We also look forward to welcoming more employees to the LaserShip team and growing our involvement with the local community.”

LaserShip plans to hire additional full-time employees in the next few months to prepare for the upcoming holiday season. Available jobs include Freight Coordinators, Supervisors, Dispatchers, and Sort Managers.
