AMAZON has confirmed it will open a second operating site in Warrington this autumn.

The online retail giant already has a warehouse, or fulfilment centre as it brands itself, in Great Sankey.

But Amazon Logistics has now announced that it will open a new ‘delivery station’ as part of the Omega II Mountpark development off the M62.

The 18,800-square metre building is expected to be fully operational this autumn and will serve customers based in the Warrington area, according to Amazon.

The delivery station will create more than 60 permanent jobs, in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon Logistics’ delivery service partners and Amazon Flex delivery partners.

Delivery stations power the last mile of the retailer’s order process and help to speed up deliveries for customers.

Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighbouring Amazon fulfilment and sortation centres, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers.

Kerry-Anne Lawlor, country director for Amazon Logistics, said: “We are excited to invest in the Warrington area with a new delivery station.

“This will provide efficient delivery for customers and create new jobs for the talented workforce.”
