The online retail giant is partnering with Abu Dhabi Investment Office to establish the facility, which will be built in line with the company’s carbon reduction strategies, according to Reuters.

The upcoming centre will create thousands of local jobs and will also aid the UAE in its goal to reach net-zero emission by 2050. The facility will use machine learning and artificial intelligence technology to improve operational efficiency, the customer experience and speed of deliveries.

Amazon International Consumer Senior Vice President Russell Grandinetti said: “Driven by customer obsession, innovation and long-term thinking, we are very proud to be working alongside the UAE leadership as we contribute to the nation’s accelerating digital economy and ambitious growth agenda. We look forward to partnering with the Abu Dhabi Investment Office to bring Amazon’s advanced logistics, technology innovations, sustainability initiatives and decades of expertise to the area.”
