Amazon Setting Up Fulfillment Center in Abu Dhabi – Report


Amazon (AMZN) has inked a strategic partnership with Abu Dhabi Investment Office. Reuters reports that the two will establish a fulfillment center by 2024. The center is to be built in accordance with the tech giant’s carbon reduction strategies. AMZN shares fell 2.15% to close at $3,503.5 on November 26.

Amazon is a U.S. company that provides online retail shopping services and cloud computing services. The company operates through three business segments: North America, International, and Amazon Web Services.

Abu Dhabi Fulfillment Center

The fulfillment center should create thousands of jobs while also enhancing Abu Dhabi’s logistics sector. Furthermore, it is expected to benefit the retail ecosystem at a time when e-commerce is growing at an impressive rate. The construction of the fulfillment center will also align with the United Arab Emirates UAE ambitions to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. (See Top Smart Score Stocks on TipRanks)
