eBay Enterprise will open a new fulfillment center in Ontario, Canada, in the second quarter of this year. The new 150,000 square foot facility will support client growth, including The Children’s Place, which recently signed a new multiyear agreement with eBay Enterprise.

The Children’s Place, the largest pure-play children’s specialty apparel retailer in North America, has been an eBay Enterprise client since 2011. The renewal includes fulfillment services for the company’s rapidly growing Canadian ecommerce business.

The new facility extends eBay Enterprise’s fulfillment and freight offerings in Canada and includes automation, such as conveyance and Put-to-Light technologies, to speed package delivery times.
