Amazon sets up 1st Australia warehouse ahead of retail launch

Amazon.com Inc. is opening its first warehouse in Australia as the company readies the launch of its retail operations in the country, Reuters reported.

The e-commerce giant selected an industrial area in the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong South for the site of its 24,000-square-meter fulfillment center, following a lease deal arranged via commercial real estate firm CB Richard Ellis, News.com.au reported.

Amazon's director of operations for Australia, Robert Bruce, said the facility is expected to create "hundreds of new roles" and open up business opportunities in line with the upcoming rollout of the Amazon Marketplace service. Amazon currently employees nearly 1,000 people in Australia.

The company would immediately begin recruitment for operations managers, pickers, packers, systems technicians, human resources specialists and other roles, News.com.au reported.

Amazon's Australian push could reportedly wipe out millions of dollars from the earnings of retail chains such as JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Wesfarmers Ltd., the parent company of Target Australia Pty. Ltd. and Kmart Australia Ltd.

Amazon made its first foray into Australia with the launch of Amazon Web Services in 2012 and a Kindle Store via amazon.com.au in 2013.
