As the world’s largest online retailer, it’s no surprise that its biggest fulfillment center in Phoenix, Ariz., is the size of 28 football fields.
That’s because it’s Amazon’s goal to be stocked with everything anyone could possibly want at any given time.
Amazon has 80 fulfillment centres in the world to handle all of its orders.
Thanks to Imgur user SippingTea’s incredible photos, we have a sense of what this incredible operation actually looks like.
Disclosure: Jeff Bezos is an investor in Business Insider through his personal investment company Bezos Expeditions.
The Phoenix fulfillment center could hold up to 28 football fields. Stacks of shelves line the warehouse.
Some heavy lifting might be necessary. The average worker gets paid between $US11 and $US14 per hour.
Luckily, these conveyor belts that move at speeds up to 20mph help move products faster. Look at all of those products. Just imagine how crazy this must be during the holidays.
