Amazon Canada launches a new fulfilment centre

No primary category set

Amazon Canada has announced that it plans to open its seventh Canadian fulfillment centre located in the greater Calgary region’s Rocky View community.

The 600,000 square foot customer fulfillment facility located in Nose Creek Business Park, Amazon’s first in Alberta, will create more than 750 new full-time associate roles – joining Amazon’s current and growing workforce of 2,000-plus full-time fulfillment employees across the country. In total, Amazon employs more than 4,400 employees throughout Canada working at corporate offices, development centres, and other facilities.

The new facility will be part of Amazon’s existing network of fulfillment centres located in Ontario: Brampton, Mississauga, and Milton, and British Columbia: Delta and New Westminster. The new workers at this facility will pick, pack, and ship items.

Glenn Sommerville, Director of Amazon Operations in Canada says: “We are excited to continue our growth in Canada and especially in the greater Calgary community where we’ve already received great community support. Our ability to create more than 750 good-paying jobs with great benefits is the result of our dedicated workforce across the country who continue to raise the bar on operational excellence and customer obsession. Customers have seen the great work they do and we couldn’t be prouder of our ability to grow in Canada.”

Amazon clearly continues to prosper and expand in Canada and that’s good news for sellers. For UK merchants it’s a relatively easy marketplace to plug into, especially if you’re already using FBA. When you sign up to sell on Amazon in the US you also automatically plug into Amazon Canada and Amazon Mexico and you can send your stock into FBA in both too.
