The logistics giant will halt the expansion of its warehouses in Spain until at least 2024
The growth of the online sales market during the pandemic catapulted Amazon to the top spot in logistics in the world, but a shift in consumer behaviour led to Jeff Bezos’s company reporting its first quarterly losses in seven years this May.
Despite the bombshell announcement, Amazon has reaffirmed its commitment to Spain, promising to “continue on the path to fulfil our promise of having 25,000 permanent employees in the country by 2025. We will end 2022 with more than 20,000 permanent employees, after creating 2,000 jobs this year.”
“In 2022, we have opened new logistics stations, Amazon Fresh hubs and a logistics centre (in Spain),” the company said in a statement.
Most recently, the retailer launched a 130,000 square metre storage and management facility in Onda in July.
