Amazon Australia opened a second Melbourne fulfilment centre (FC) in Ravenhall in 2021, creating around 300 jobs and more than doubling Amazon’s operational footprint in Victoria.
The new facility is located at Dexus’ Horizon 3023 estate, a 127-hectare site which adjoins Caroline Springs train station and is close to the proposed Western Intermodal Freight Terminal.
The new fulfilment centre is 37,000 square metres – almost double the size of the Melbourne Cricket Ground – with capacity to house up to six million items ranging from health, household and personal care products, consumer electronics, books, clothing and pantry food and drink staples, to larger items like flat screen TVs, cartons of soft drink or nappies, and gardening equipment.
The Ravenhall FC will join Amazon’s first Australian FC in Dandenong South, enabling Amazon and its sellers to ship more items directly to Victorian customers from Melbourne. Amazon.com.au launched in Australia in December 2017 and now offers customers 125 million products across 31 different categories. The company has made significant investment in the expansion of its logistics network in Victoria this year, with the opening of two Melbourne Delivery Stations in Mulgrave and Melbourne Airport’s business park which will enable faster delivery to customers around Melbourne; and the launch of its new Amazon Flex delivery service.
