13 September 2017 – Expansión
The US company has announced the entry into operation of a new logistics station, for the delivery of orders and products, in Sevilla. It is Amazon’s first centre in Andalucia, which will allow the company to operate with greater capacity and flexibility in the south of Spain.
The space will have a surface area of approximately 10,000 m2 and will see the creation of almost 80 jobs during the course of next year. The centre in Sevilla “will strengthen the distribution network in Spain and will allow us to satisfy the needs of clients”, says John Tagawa, Vice-President of Amazon for the European Union.
The e-commerce giant has decided to heavily back Spain. Its network in our country dates back to 2012, with the opening of a logistics centre in San Fernando de Henares, in Madrid, and another one shorter afterwards in the Barcelona municipality of Castellbisbal.
Moreover, the company plans to open two centres in Barcelona in autumn 2017: one in El Prat and the other one in Martorellas. A few months later, it will inaugurate a centre in Illescas (Toledo). Recently, the US giant also announced the opening of two logistics stations in Getafe and Valencia.
