American online retailer Amazon has announced that 170 new jobs have been created at its unit in Bielany Wrocławskie, near Wrocław. The restructuring programme is associated with the implementation of a fully-robotic logistics system, named Amazon Robotics, at the warehouses. This is the first logistic centre with that system in Europe. The system involves robots bringing the shelf to the packer rather than the packer going to the shelf. The new system increases the efficiency and capacity of storage space by half. Amazon has 109 logistic centres worldwide, including 29 in Europe. Amazon has been operating in Poland since 2013 and has 3 distribution centres (two in Bielany Wrocławskie and one in Poznań) in the country. Polish centres are part of the Amazon’s distribution chain in Europe.
