The town of Malacky in the Bratislava region could be in the running for a new Amazon distribution centre, after Brno City Council rejected the company’s application, according to an article in SME daily today.
The online retailer had its hopes of setting up in Brno smashed after the plan was rejected, as councillors did not approve the sale of land to the company. The company is now demanding a final stance of the city, but if no agreement is reached, the town of Malacky near Bratislava could become the base for the new centre, according to the daily.
An industrial zone in Malacky is an alternative location for the company, with good motorway and rail connections. Amazon is the biggest online retailer in the world, and already has a rapidly expanding operations centre in Bratislava.
