Friday 15 September 2017 | 15:08 CET | News
Amazon is looking to triple its distribution space in Mexico with a new 1 million square-foot warehouse near Mexico City, according to unnamed sources cited by Reuters. The new space is slated to be built in the Tepotzotlan municipality about 40 kilometres north of the Mexican capital and should be completed by next year, said the sources. Amazon launched its Prime membership service in Mexico earlier this year, offering subscribers unlimited free shipping on over 20 million products and streaming video for MXN 899 a year.
