The new centre, located in Moorebank, South West Sydney, is 43,000 square metres in size — approximately six football fields — and Amazon says it provides easy access to the M5 motorway, Sydney airport and ports.
Amazon opened its first fulfilment centre in Australia, located in Dandenong South in Victoria, in December last year.
And as part of its Australian region expansion, it launched Amazon Web Services in 2012 and launched a Kindle Store on amazon.com.au in 2013.
Amazon says sellers using FBA will automatically have their products eligible for Prime, its newly launched subscription service that provides customers with benefits such as free two-day business delivery, entertainment, and access to members-only deals events, such as Prime Day.
"This is an exciting milestone for Amazon in Australia. The Sydney facility in Moorebank will help Amazon ensure that customers enjoy fast and reliable delivery across more areas of the country," said Robert Bruce, Amazon director of Operations.
“The new Sydney centre builds on the capabilities of our first fulfilment centre in Dandenong South in Victoria, and expands our ability to service the growing customer demand.”
Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller said: “We look forward to having good jobs for people close to where they live and working with Amazon as a partner in the local community. We expect the Sydney fulfilment centre will become a key logistics hub thanks to its strategic position in South West Sydney.”
