Amazon’s chief executive, Jeff Bezos, has announced the newest company project, which is a $1.5 billion US dollar-based airport in Ohaio, United States.
This space is expected to be similar to the size of the world centers of airline distributors.
Amazon in 2017 had agreed to a 50-year contract for a space of more than 900 hectares from Northern Kentucky International Airport, reports Telegraph.
According to Bezos, the company plans to take over the distribution process by becoming more reliable and disconnecting from companies such as UPS, FedEx, or USPS to reduce costs and speed up delivery of the most important materials.
We’re investing $1.5 billion in our new air hub to get you your packages faster. Three million square feet, and it’s going to create 2,000 jobs. And if you’re guessing that driving a front loader was fun, you’re right! #amazon #prime pic.twitter.com/Cud4orKrC4

“This center will send messages to the customer more quickly. We will shift Prime service from distribution within two days in a day and this center will play a major role for that, “Bezos said.
The center is expected to open in 2021 and will create two thousand jobs at the airport.
