This enables Amazon to offer customers faster and more flexible delivery options.”

In addition to the logistics centre, Goodman is building a multi-storey car park for 277 of Amazon’s own delivery vans, this will offer faster access to the company’s fleet for more efficient last mile delivery. The building will include 1,200 sqm of office mezzanine and a 3,700 sqm canopy.
