Getting packages to customers
Our fulfilment network is made up of state-of-the-art technology and a variety of building types and sizes to support processing orders, but it’s truly our people who bring the magic of Amazon to life for our customers.
Sortable fulfilment centre
Around 800,000 square feet in size, sortable fulfilment centres can employ more than 1,500 full-time associates. In these buildings, Amazon employees pick, pack, and ship customer orders such as books, toys, and housewares. Thanks to the innovations of Amazon Robotics, associates can work alongside robots, allowing them to learn new skills and helping create a more efficient process to meet customer demand.
Non-sortable fulfilment centre
Ranging in size from 600,000 to 1 million square feet, non-sortable fulfilment centres employ more than 1,000 full-time associates. In these centers, associates pick, pack, and ship bulky or larger-sized customer items such as patio furniture, outdoor equipment, or rugs.
At sortation centres, associates sort customer orders by final destination and consolidate them onto trucks for faster delivery. Amazon’s sort centre network provides full- and part-time career opportunities and is powering our ability to provide customers with everyday delivery, including Sunday delivery, which customers love.
In these buildings, customer orders are prepared for last-mile delivery to customers. Amazon delivery providers enable our fast, everyday shipping.
