Amazon to invest in new logistics centers in Poland

By: | at 01:30 PM | Intermodal  

German media had speculated that the new sites - in Wroclaw and Poznan - would result in closures elsewhere, especially after Amazon was hit by strikes in Germany over pay and conditions and unions this weekend warned more strikes could come ahead of Christmas.

The Amazon spokesman said there were no plans to shut existing logistics centres in Europe and that Amazon was about to open a new site outside Berlin that would create 1,000 permanent jobs.

“Amazon is always looking at options to expand capacity,” he said. (Reuters)
