Amazon expanding operations in Milan
Amazon has opened a new delivery station in Milan, which will enable the online retailer to expand its operations in Italy’s Lombardy region. The new Milan station follows on from the opening this summer of both a new fulfilment centre in Rome and a new Development Centre for machine learning 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 fulfill Amazon customers’ demand for faster and more flexible deliveries.”
