According to The Australian Financial Review, Amazon will open its second distribution centre in Sydney's southwest after leasing a 43,000sq m industrial facility in Moorebank.
Sources had indicated the mega online retailer was scoping the Sydney market for a new facility via leasing agent CBRE. The group has now agreed on terms on the lease at the Goodman Centenary Distribution Centre, due to start operations in the second half of the year.
"Sydney represents another important development for our growth strategy in Australia, following a steady and progressive increase in customer demand," Amazon Australia operations director Robert Bruce said.
Amazon made its much anticipated Australian debut last year in Melbourne's Dandenong South, securing a 24,387sq m former Bunnings distribution centre from Melbourne's Pellicano family.
It commenced sales in December with 23 categories including consumer electronics, books, sporting goods, fashion and Amazon devices.
The new Sydney warehouse would allow the company to speed up delivery to customers, Amazon said.
