Amazon is planning a third facility in Doncaster.

The new site will be at iPort: a 337 acre (net developable) greenfield development site with an outline planning consent for up to 6 million sq ft of warehouse space and 3 million square of detailed planning consent, owned by Verdion. When finished, it will also incorporate a 35 acre dedicated strategic rail freight terminal.

It is anticipated that the site will open in the summer of 2017 and will see the creation of around 500 jobs.

Amazon has said that the new site will help it keep up with “growing customer demand” in the UK.

The two existing Doncaster warehouses are located on Water Vole Way and Balby Carr Bank, which opened in September 2015 and 2010, resepctively.

John Tagawa, VP of Amazon UK Operations said:

"We are delighted to announce that we will be creating 500 new permanent full-time jobs with competitive pay and comprehensive benefits starting on day one by opening our third fulfilment centre in Doncaster in summer 2017,"

"We already have two fulfilment centres in Doncaster so know from experience that there is strong talent in the region who would be well suited to working for Amazon,"
