Panattoni Europe’s fourth project for Amazon totalling 161,500 sqm of space will be built on a 29-hectare site in Kołbaskowo. Additionally, the developer is realizing 7,800 sqm of road infrastructure, including a double roundabout, which will be incorporated in the existing Kolbaskowo junction, on the exit from the A6 motorway. The value of the investment accounts for 410 million PLN.
Amazon’s decision to build another order fulfilment centre was dictated by various factors including the growing demand for its services among customers from Poland and all of Europe. For this reason, within 3 years after launching the centre more than a thousand full-time jobs will be created here, including a number of management positions. And recruitment starts from the top – high-class specialists in IT, finance, HR, logistics, and engineering are the most sought-after. Execution of order fulfilment processes will be supported by innovative technologies, including Amazon Robotics.
The facility for Amazon will be developed in Kołbaskowo, approx. 12 km from Szczecin city centre and as little as 230 m from the Kołbaskowo Junction on the A6 motorway. The excellent connections to the rest of Western Europe, make Northern Poland, and particularly Szczecin, a place of keen interest to international investors.
