Online retail giant could be set to ramp up its logistics plans further by buying Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, according to a report in a German newspaper.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung reports that discussions between Amazon and the airport had taken place, and that the gateway planned to decide between three possible bidders soon.

Amazon runs a large fulfilment centre near where Frankfurt-Hahn is located near Koblenz in Germany.
