On 2 May 2018  online retailer Amazon announced the creation of 100 new jobs in Italy. The new jobs will be created in a new sorting deposit in Buccinasco, a town in the Milan hinterland, which will come into operation within few weeks from the announcement.

According to the company, the new hirings will take place through open-ended full-time contracts. Amazon's hiring policy does not entail the use of subcontracting to workers cooperatives, a practice highly common in the Italian logistics industry. Such company policy have been praised by Italian trade unions, which, however, have also strongly criticised the poor working conditions suffered by Amazon workers in other branches.
