Amazon’s second distribution center employs around 120 people in the 7.900-square-metre warehouse in Vienna-Liesing, says Vienna.at.
Around 400 drivers from smaller delivery companies will be able to deliver the parcels to Austrian customers. The online retailer is thus becoming more independent of industry heavyweights such as Austrian Post and DHL.
Amazon distribution centers are not warehouses
The parcels arrive from foreign Amazon logistics and sorting centers and are then picked up by the external delivery companies and delivered to customers.
It is Amazon’s second major distribution center in Austria. Less than two years ago, the company opened its first parcel centre in Großebersdorf in the Mistelbach district.
