Amazon opens 3 new depots in Italy

Amazon has announced it is to open three new delivery depots in Italy in autumn, ahead of the 2021 peak season.

The new depots in Vicenza, Treviso and Riese in the Veneto region of Italy will create 60 new full time jobs. Amazon will continue to work with local carriers to expand its delivery network and meet the fast growing demand for goods from the platform. It is expected that the courier companies will hire an additional 180 staff.

Gabriele Sigismondi, head of Amazon Logistics in Italy, remarked, “In such difficult times as these, we’re thrilled to be able to bring in 240 new full-time jobs thanks to the opening of these warehouse operations. Amazon, alongside our delivery service suppliers, strives to make sure our staff come first, offering them not only a safe, modern and inclusive workplace and competitive wages, but also excellent opportunities for career growth.

“The ongoing pandemic has had a tremendous impact on all of us, and we’re quite proud to have been on the frontlines when it came to providing essential services to our customers, so people can order and receive the items they need most at their homes or businesses, while we do our best to protect the health of our personnel and that of our suppliers.”
