Amazon opens largest last-mile delivery center in Mexico City

| Leave a Comment | News All

Amazon has opened its largest last-mile delivery center in Latin America, a warehouse in Mexico City. The new facility is 30,000 square meters (more than 322,000 square feet) and will help Amazon to offer faster deliveries to customers in the city.

Amazon has been investing heavily in Mexico in recent years, and the new delivery center is part of that effort. The company has already invested 52 billion pesos ($3 billion) in Mexico, and it employs more than 8,000 people directly and another 32,000 indirectly.

The new delivery center is located in the Iztapalapa borough of Mexico City, which is one of the most populous areas in the city. The facility will help Amazon to deliver packages to customers in Iztapalapa and the surrounding areas more quickly.

Amazon is also expanding its operations in other parts of Mexico. The company recently opened a new fulfillment center in Querétaro, and it plans to open another fulfillment center in Guadalajara later this year.

The expansion of Amazon’s operations in Mexico is a sign of the company’s confidence in the Mexican market. Amazon is the leading e-commerce retailer in Mexico, and it is expected to continue to grow in the coming years.

Here are some additional details from the article that I have rewritten:

  • The new delivery center is Amazon’s 40th warehouse in Mexico.
  • The company did not disclose the investment amount for the new facility or the number of jobs it will create.
  • U.S. Ambassador Ken Salazar praised Amazon for creating jobs in Mexico, including in the country’s poorer southern regions
