Amazon Increases BC Presence

Amazon Canada is adding five buildings to its infrastructure in Metro Vancouver, BC: a fulfillment centre, sortation centre, and three delivery stations. The growth in British Columbia will expand the service and support small businesses access through Fulfillment by Amazon, a ‘you sell it, we ship it’ service that enables local businesses to store their products in Amazon's fulfillment centres and use Amazon to ship their orders, handle customer service, and take care of their returns. In Vancouver, the online retailer is building a 450,000-square-foot advanced robotics fulfillment centre in the Port of Vancouver. In Langley, it is building a sort centre and delivery station. Pit Meadows and Delta will also get delivery stations. All buildings are set to open in 2021.
