Etail giant Amazon plans to open its first logistics centre in Spain. The new hub – expected to go live within a few months – will be in San Fernando de Henares, close to Madrid. The initiative is intended to service growing demand from Spanish customers shopping at, which was launched in September last year.

Our new logistics centre in Spain will help our customers to receive the best possible service as well as a fast and reliable delivery.”
