E-commerce giant Amazon has opened a new distribution center in Poole, Dorset, in time for the holiday season.

Developer St Modwen built the 112,000 ft2 facility, which includes a multi-story van deck, on a 10.8 acre lot on Sterte Avenue West in Poole.

The developer originally attempted to build a three-unit project on the site and submitted a planning proposal before securing Amazon as a tenant last year.

Amazon said the new site, which is three times the size of the company’s hub at Bournemouth Airport, is its largest south coast warehouse it will replace.
