Good news for online shoppers

Amazon, the world's largest online marketplace, could be opening its first Irish fulfilment centre.

According to The Irish Times,  the fulfilment centre will be located on a 650,000 square foot premises in the Mountpark logistics centre in Baldonnell in West Dublin.


This would be the first Amazon premises in Ireland where products are picked and packaged for delivery by Amazon staff, meaning faster delivery times on items purchased from Amazon by Irish customers.

Most Amazon orders to Ireland are currently processed in the UK and delivered by An Post.

With Brexit coming into affect earlier this year, Irish orders from Amazon have been subject to delays.

Speaking to The Irish Times, Gillez Fernandez, commercial director of An Post Commerce, called the proposed centre “good news for Irish Amazon customers”.

“By avoiding the Brexit pipeline, Amazon can get their parcels to us in An Post faster for immediate delivery to the customer."

Amazon declined to comment on the reports.
