Amazon will bring Logistics and courier jobs to Stoke

The march of Amazon’s UK expansion continues with good news for Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire. Once the heart of the British pottery industry, it’s now welcoming Amazon to the fold as an employer with a new Fulfilment Centre. Not only will there be 120 jobs available in the FC but also extra work for local couriers, according to reports.

Jamie Stephenson of Amazon says: “Amazon Logistics adds capacity and flexibility to Amazon’s delivery network, enabling us to meet the delivery needs of customers. We are also helping independent local delivery companies to grow their businesses by providing state-of-the-art technology to deliver Amazon orders.”

Jane Gratton of the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce says: “This is really good news for the area and will bring benefits to other local businesses as well. One of the great benefits of setting up in the city is its geographical location. We are right in the centre of the country and we have good transport links enabling businesses to access key markets both in the UK and abroad.”
