In late 2017 Amazon’s growth will continue with the opening of its newest and largest French facility in Amiens (Somme), just 120km (75mi) north of Paris. This 107,000m² Fulfillment Center will improve the current Amazon French fulfilment network. It will also support the increasing number of small businesses selling goods through the Amazon Marketplace. The new location will create 500 permanent jobs within the first three years and it presents an excellent opportunity to implement recent employment, innovation, and entrepreneurship policies. Amiens is a picturesque yet lively student city that boasts France’s tallest Gothic cathedral, largest Christmas market, canals, the Somme river and many beautiful parks and natural spaces… and soon, the mountains will come to Amiens when a huge new indoor ski complex opens just a short drive away. Amiens a wonderful place to live, make friends and grow a family!
