Amazon opens $70m purpose-built fulfilment centre in Perth

The new site will expand Amazon’s storage capacity by 500%.

Amazon Australia has launched its $70m purpose-built fulfilment centre in Perth.

Located in Jandakot, the brand-new fulfilment centre covers an area of more than 20,000 square metres with a capacity to store more than three million items, ranging from household items to appliances and bulkier packages. The new centre will also open a Disaster Relief Hub as an extension of Amazon’s Disaster Relief program in Western Australia.

For its commitment to net-zero carbon by 2040, the site will incorporate energy-efficient features, such as a 1.5 MW solar panel system, water-efficient fixtures, a controllable heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, and LED lighting.

The launch expands Amazon’s Western Australian operational footprint by 60% and grows its storage capacity by 500%, as a measure to meet the growing customer demand, increase the proportion of items, and enhance the delivery outcomes for customers and residents.
