Amazon starts its own package service in Germany

Amazon is taking the first steps in the parcel delivery market in Germany. It starts its own parcel service in Munich and has even had a 6000 square meter sorting center built in Olching. The orders go from the central logistics center of Amazon in Graben near Augsburg to Olching. From there the orders are delivered to the door, but Amazon does not do that itself

Amazon is taking the first steps in the parcel delivery market in Germany. It starts its own parcel service in Munich and has even had a 6000 square meter sorting center built in Olching.

The orders go from the central logistics center of Amazon in Graben near Augsburg to Olching. From there the orders are delivered to the door, but Amazon does not do that itself. The retailer uses regional parcel services such as Interkep, Rico Logistics, Systemlogistik, Krae Transport and AZ Logistik.

The underlying idea is that Amazon wants to be able to deliver in this region within the same day at a lower cost. Now the company depends on partners like DHL and Hermes.

In an interview with VerkehrsRundschau, there is also a second sorting center in Munich that has yet to be built. Amazon is already looking at other cities such as Hamburg and Berlin, but has not yet taken a decision on this.
