Amazon says it is expanding its logistics operations in Australia, adding more than 5,000 jobs and expanding its fulfillment center in the state

Amazon has added more than 1,000 new jobs in the past year in Australia and is expanding logistics operations to provide customers with more fulfillment centers, according to the company.

The Australian arm of Amazon has been expanding its operations in the Australian market since 2014, when it acquired a controlling stake in a warehouse logistics firm, Amazon World Wide.

It now has nearly 6,000 warehouse workers and warehouses in Australia.

Amazon also announced a $1.6 billion acquisition of the logistics business, JetPack International, in 2016.

Amazon’s Australian operations are expected to grow over the next few years, as it expands the fulfillment center to provide more fulfillment options to Australian customers, according a statement from the company on Monday.

The expansion in the warehouse space, which also includes new office space and a new shipping warehouse, is expected to add around 1,500 jobs, the statement said.
