Amazon is to boost its East Midlands fulfilment centre network with a unit at Chesterfield.
The new centre will help to meet customer demand, whilst also support SMEs selling their products through the Amazon Marketplace.
No announcement has been made on the size or location but it is expected to be around 100,000 sq ft, with Markham Vale tipped as the likely landing place.
The move comes a year after Amazon sighed up for 500,000 sq ft at Segro’s East Midlands Gateway, close to junction 24 of the M1 motorway in Leicestershire.
East Midlands Gateway, links directly to the Castle Donington freight line, has planning consent for up to six million sq ft of logistics space and will incorporate a 50-acre strategic rail freight interchange and is expected to have around ten distribution units.
