The high-tech facility will upskill hundreds of UAE employees and equip them for the country’s digital future
Amazon recently announced the opening of its largest delivery station in Abu Dhabi in time for the upcoming Prime Day event this July.
The 4,700sqm advanced delivery station is the second largest in the country and provides same-day and one-day deliveries to customers across the city, including those located in outer areas, such as Al Samha, Al Shawamekh, Yas and Saadiyat Islands, Bani Yas, and Al Wathba.
The new delivery station creates opportunities for hundreds of full and part-time employees in a range of jobs with all kinds of experience, education, background, and skills. From delivery station associates to positions in operations, health and safety, supply chain technology, and analytics, all employees are eligible for training programmes that will upskill UAE talent in the future-facing e-commerce sector.
The launch of the new facility follows Amazon’s announcement with the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) in November last year, detailing the opening of its most technologically advanced Fulfillment Centre in the region that will be opening its doors in the capital in 2023.
“By empowering the wider e-commerce ecosystem to get products to customers faster and more conveniently, we are ultimately improving the shopping experience for all customers,” noted Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President, Amazon Middle East, and North Africa (MENA).
“The partnership between Amazon and ADIO reflects the ease of doing business in Abu Dhabi and the long-term growth opportunities available in the Emirate,” commented Eng. Abdulla Abdul Aziz AlShamsi, Acting Director General, ADIO.
“Opening ahead of the upcoming Prime Day event taking place this July on Amazon.ae, the facility and its technology enable us to continue to provide a seamless delivery experience for Prime members across the country,” remarked Prashant Saran, Director of Operations, Amazon MENA.
