Amazon has opened a new delivery station in the Italian city of Milan. This will enable the online giant to extend its operations around the Lombardy region of Italy.
The new station in Milan follows the new opening of a new fulfilment centre in Rome as well as a Development Centre for machine learning earlier this year in Turin.
In a statement posted on its official blog, Amazon said: “The latest delivery station will allow us to meet the high quality delivery needs of an increasing number of customers. It’s our second delivery station in the region, after opening one in Avigliana (Torino) on July 25. Apart from the 4.000 square meters delivery station at Porto di Mare (Rogoredo) we also have an urban fulfilment center in Affori and a corporate HQ in Milan.”
The two delivery stations are managed by Amazon Logistics.
Philippe Hemard, VP EU Amazon Logistics, commented: “This new opening, less than two months after the launch of Avigliana’s Delivery Station and the new FC in Rome, proves how much and how fast Amazon operations is expanding in Italy to meet a growing customer demand.
“Porto di Mare delivery station is a new milestone in our development path in Italy and will help us to fulfil Amazon customers’ demand for faster and more flexible deliveries.”
Despite the turbulence of the modern day, Amazon seems to be investing for the long term, as can be seen by the company not being too put off by Brexit and continuing to extend its operations in the UK.
