Amazon opens fulfillment center in the Netherlands

Ecommerce giant Amazon has opened its first fulfillment center in the Netherlands. With the new location, the online marketplace will be able to deliver Dutch orders faster. The launch is part of a collaboration with Dutch logistics company Bleckmann.

Last month, sources already announced that the online marketplace wanted to open a distribution center in the Netherlands. Amazon launched its Dutch online store in 2020, and until recently, the company operated from a sorting center near Schiphol Airport. Dutch customers received products that were stored in Germany.

Up to 25,000 packages per day

The new fulfillment center is located near the German border, which connects it to the online marketplace’s international logistics network. With 2,200 cubic meters of storage space, Amazon can process up to 25,000 packages per day. Amazon is leasing the building from Dutch supply chain service provider Bleckmann. The Dutch company will also handle the operational work of the fulfillment center.

‘The opening of our local fulfillment center is an important milestone.’

The company expects to eventually hire nearly 170 employees in the new location. It also plans to add more Dutch brands to its assortment. “The opening of our local fulfillment center is an important milestone, perpetuating’s great reception by Dutch customers since our launch in the Netherlands in 2020”, said Roeland Donker, Country Manager at Amazon Netherlands.

Faster delivery of Dutch products

“We have become one of the leading online stores in the Netherlands. The warehouse allows us to add new esteemed Dutch and international brands to our assortment and deliver their products faster. This step will help us become the most customer-oriented company in the Netherlands.”
