Amazon’s Haydock, Merseyside sorting centre is to open in September, with local reports saying it will create 250 permanent jobs.
The 30,000 square foot unit is to also create a large number of temporary jobs during the peak season that begins shortly after.
The Florida Farm site will sort parcels and be sent to delivery stations in and around Merseyside, from where drivers will take them the final mile.
Kevin Marsh, General Manager for Amazon Sortation UK Operations, said: “We are delighted to be creating 250 permanent new jobs over the next 18 months in St Helens as we continue to develop our last mile logistics network.
“This sortation centre will have an important role in supporting the fast and reliable delivery Amazon customers love and trust.
“We would like to thank everyone in St Helens and beyond for their support on establishing this new site.”
