The development of Amazon's first fulfillment center in Poland will have a footprint of approximately 95,000 square meters. Construction of the facility commenced in October 2013 and is planned to be fully operational in the second half of 2014.
"We are proud that Amazon chose to enter the Polish market in partnership with Goodman. Construction will be rapid, to allow Amazon to make full use of the warehouse's logistics capabilities in under a year," said Blazej Ciesielczak, regional director, Goodman Poland.
Amazon plans to create up to 2,000 long-term jobs at the warehouse, plus an additional 3,000 seasonal jobs in order to cover peak times during the holiday season.
Since 2006, Goodman has completed over 900,000 square meters for Amazon across 11 developments in Germany, France and the UK.
