Amazon will open a new advanced storage and distribution centre in Western Sydney, creating more than 2000 jobs.
Located in Kemps Creek near the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, the 200,000 square metre facility is expected to be the largest fulfilment centre built in Australia. It will have the ability to operate 24/7.
The centre will incorporate Amazon’s latest robotics systems, the first time they will have been deployed in the southern hemisphere.
Amazon will aim to be delivering packages to NSW residents by Christmas 2021.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said Amazon’s commitment reflected the NSW Government’s focus on innovation and technology to create jobs.
“This important commitment by one of the world’s leading multinationals highlights Western Sydney’s growing stature as a strong investment destination,” Ms Berejiklian said.
Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said Amazon’s decision was a vote of confidence in the NSW economy.
“The project will contribute to local workforce development and provide skilled employment in areas like robotics, logistics and supply chain,” Mr Ayres said.
“It will also help build our local e-commerce sector, giving small and medium-sized businesses access to Amazon’s packing, shipping, customer service and returns capabilities, along with easier access to millions of customers across Australia and the world."
