Amazon is back in the industrial real estate expansion game one year after pulling back from the sector, but the e-commerce giant has new items on its shopping list.
Amazon plans on doubling its amount of centers geared towards same-day delivery, The Information reported. The facilities, which are smaller and closer to customers than traditional fulfillment centers, appear to be a more targeted opportunity to continue growth after the company placed millions of square feet of warehouse space on the sublet market.
The company offers same-day delivery on select items in 90 markets across the country. The timeline of the strategy to add to its footprint is unclear.
