Amazon is going to open its largest distribution centre in Spain in the Megapark business park in Dos Hermanas (Sevilla) to become the park’s first tenant. The new mega-warehouse will have a constructed surface area of around 190,000 m2 on a plot spanning 165,000 m2 and is expected to be operational from 2021.
The e-commerce giant has been searching for a suitable facility for months and has opted for Megapark in the end due to its excellent road network and proximity to the Port of Sevilla, where it will open a new logistics station.
The plot of land and the future warehouse will both be owned by the investment fund Goodman Real Estate Spain, with which Amazon is expected to sign a lease contract within the coming days.
One of the benefits of the location in Sevilla is the availability of the port, which means that Amazon will be able to offer a more comprehensive delivery service to the Canary Islands by boat.
The business park is located opposite the La Isla industrial estate, between the A-4 motorway towards Cádiz and the future SE-40 ring-road.
