New 323,000 Sq Ft Amazon sortation facility set for St Helens
Amazon is to open a 323,000 sq ft sortation centre in St Helens later this year, creating more than 250 jobs.
The site – which will open in September 2019 – will sort parcels received from the retail giant’s fulfilment centres before they are transported to delivery stations where they are collected by drivers.
Kevin Marsh, general manager for Amazon sortation UK operations, said: “We are delighted to be creating 250 permanent new jobs over the next 18 months in St Helens as we continue to develop our last mile logistics network.
“This sortation centre will have an important role in supporting the fast and reliable delivery Amazon customers love and trust. We would like to thank everyone in St Helens and beyond for their support on establishing this new site.”
