Amazon struggles to find warehouse in NW

Amazon struggles to find warehouse in NW

E-commerce giant Amazon may be struggling to find a warehouse in North West England, but it’s having no trouble in Europe.

The books-to-baby clothes retail has taken delivery of its latest warehouse - at Wroclaw, Poland.

The 403,543 sq ft warehouse one of the largest free standing logistics centres in the Central and Eastern European region

The warehouse is he latest fruit of a 3.6m sq ft property partnership with Australian-owned developer Goodman.

Goodman first began working with Amazon in 2006, creating a 256,000 sq ft regional fulfilment centre in Leipzig. The partnership has now delivered 12 new Amazon warehouses, including the 246,000 sq ft Swansea warehouse.

Amazon’s search for a warehouse in North West England began three years ago, but has been dogged by planning and site availability problems.
