First look at Australia’s mega Amazon warehouse
Western Sydney will become home to Amazon's first robotic distribution centre in the Southern Hemisphere, which will start delivering packages from next year.
The facility, measuring in at the size of 22 rugby fields, will support 1,500 advanced manufacturing jobs when it opens on 2021.
Construction has already begun, with 700 tradies employed to build the site.
"When this site is completed, it will also be the largest warehouse in all of Australia, Amazon country manager Matt Furlong said.
"It will enable us to house up to 11 million items ranging from toys and electronics to consumables, clothing, home goods, sporting equipment, and everything in between."
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the centre will help support western Sydney and the aerotropolis project.
"Western Sydney has become and will become the advanced manufacturing capital of the nation," she said.
