Amazon now supplies customers in Duisburg and the Rhine-Ruhr region directly from the Port of Duisburg (duisport). To this end, Amazon has leased 9,300 square meters of warehouse space and 1,200 square meters of office and employee space on the port grounds in the Kaßlerfeld city district.
Approximately 100 employees ensure that goods are delivered to customers as quickly as possible, assisted by medium-sized freight companies hired by Amazon. The entire delivery process is organized by Amazon. The Port of Duisburg’s good connection to the A3 and A40 was an important consideration for Amazon to ensure optimum access to end users in the Rhine-Ruhr region.
”We are very pleased to open up a distribution center in Duisburg - a center that combines more than 20 years of logistics expertise, technological progress and investments in transport infrastructure. We are now in a position to offer our customers a greater number and faster delivery options,” says Bernd Gschaider, Director of Amazon Logistics in Germany. “Amazon Logistics not only supports its local delivery partners with expanding their business but also provides them with the latest technology for package deliveries.”
