E-COMMERCE giant Amazon has leased 500,000 square feet of space in a multi-storey logistics centre in urban Seattle, Washington created by developer Prologis.

Amazon's use of the Georgetown Crossroads facility is intended to support the online merchant's aim to shorten delivery times and fulfil one-day delivery in the Seattle metropolitan area. There is no immediate link to Amazon's nearby air operation at Seattle/Tacoma Airport (SEA), although inventory arriving at the airport could move through the facility, reported New York's Air Cargo World.



The building features truck ramps leading to loading docks on the second level and a third floor, served via forklift accessible freight elevators, for lighter-scale warehouseoperations.



While Amazon has leased the space, it is not yet clear whether the e-tailer giant has started moving into the building.
