The Manitoba government is proud to welcome Amazon Logistics to the province, Economic Development and Training Minister Ralph Eichler announced today.

Amazon plans to open a new delivery station in the Inkster Industrial Park, northeast of Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport. The 113,000-sq.-ft. site is set to launch in 2021.

The station will create hundreds of direct and indirect full-time and part-time jobs in areas such as parcel sorting, management and third-party delivery services. The delivery station will receive and sort parcels from other distribution centres and co-ordinate deliveries to homes and businesses in the Winnipeg area through local third-party service providers.

The minister noted the job creation opportunity is particularly welcome as the Manitoba government works to restart its economy from the COVID-19 pandemic and safely return Manitobans to work.
