Amazon opens new delivery hub

Amazon Australia has opened a new logistics site located in West Gosford, NSW, enabling the delivery of customer orders in-and-around the Central Coast.

The arrival of the new site has created local operational jobs, as well as flexible earning opportunities with Amazon’s innovative delivery service Amazon Flex.

“We’re pleased to contribute to the local economy through the creation of jobs and flexible earning opportunities for people in the area, and we look forward to delivering what our customers need and being an active member of the community,” says Amazon Australia Director of Operations Mindy Epsidio-Garcia.

Site Lead James Montecillo started his career at Amazon at the Kemps Creek Fulfilment Centre and has since gone on to lead Amazon logistics sites in Bella Vista, Newcastle and now West Gosford.

“I was very excited to be given the opportunity to launch the West Gosford site; it’s a great community and team to be part of,” he says. “What I love the most about this role is being able to see the delivery process from end to end and delighting customers with our delivery promises.”

Amazon logistics sites power the ‘last mile’ of the order process and help to improve the delivery experience for Amazon customers in the surrounding areas. Packages are shipped to the West Gosford site from Amazon fulfilment centres and are then picked up by Amazon Flex delivery partners to be delivered directly to customers.

“The opening of our logistics site in West Gosford will enable us to provide an enhanced delivery experience for customers in the Central Coast,” says Ms Epsidio-Garcia.

“Building infrastructure closer to where our customers live enables us to deliver to them more efficiently, as well as creating exciting job opportunities for locals in a safe and positive work environment.”

The West Gosford site is Amazon’s 11th logistics site in Australia, joining the Mayfield West site in Newcastle to support the greater Central Coast and Hunter Region.
