Amazon keeps growing in Monterrey, Mexico
The American tech giant Amazon decided to expand its operations in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico by opening three new delivery stations.
These facilities will add to the two delivery stations already operating in the state, in response to the sustained growth in the demand for online shopping.
Amazon believes that by investing locally and therefore operating closer to the customer, they will be able to handle higher volumes of deliveries in a more efficient way.
Monterrey is also home to the company’s first Logistics Center in the northern region of Mexico, as well as their first Recruitment Center in the country.
Amazon was established in 1994, and today it is the world’s largest online retailer and marketplace.
“We have a great need for talent in the region; this year we are creating 1,500 great job opportunities in Monterrey,” said Diego Méndez de la Luz, Operations Director of Amazon Mexico, during the inauguration of its first recruitment center in Mexico.
These delivery stations have a total space of between 3,000 and 10,000 square meters, they are in charge of receiving the products from the logistics centers for last-mile delivery to homes in the region.
“We have many more investment projects, for example, for three and five years, but we do not share those because we also have to look at demand.”
In this sense, he highlighted that despite the decrease in sanitary measures and the reopening of shopping malls, demand for the online shopping platform is strong, as it continues to have a wide margin for growth.
American companies like Kohler, Mattel, and Stanley Black & Decker keep trusting Monterrey as the best place to invest in Mexico. Monterrey had a record-breaking year in the attraction of Foreign Direct Investment from the United States with $3 billion US Dollars in 2021, an all-time high.
