Amazon leases first Australian DCs

E-commerce behemoth Amazon has leased its first distribution centre in Australia, ahead of the rollout of its business here in the coming 12 months.
The Australian Financial Review has shared property agent CBRE has helped the online retailer decide upon a 24,387sqm warehouse on a 7.7-hectare site formerly occupied by Bunnings in Dandenong, southeast of Melbourne in Victoria.
The facility has been vacant since Bunnings moved to another Dandenong warehouse, and has been available for lease since October 2014, the AFR added.
Amazon is also rumoured to have selected its first Sydney location. ChannelNews has reported that the company is believed to have made a deal for a large fulfilment facility in Eastern Creek, at the Oakdale Industrial Estate.
The estate is owned by the Goodman Group, the same property agent that has helped Amazon set up its warehouse network across Europe and the US.
According to ChannelNews, Amazon’s Australian warehouses will be robotic and set up by US logistics fit-out specialists in the coming months.
