Delivering the Future
Innovation is in Amazon’s DNA.Through contunuous focus on questioning and improving processes, many technological enhancements have been introduced over the past two decades to get products to our customers quickly and reliably. The launch of “Amazon Robotics” in Europe in 2015 is one of the most recent advances which marked a new level improvement ,enabling the processing of orders in minutes instead of hours.
Today, highly complex technologies, developed in-house as well as modern technical equipment allow Amazon’s fulfilment centres not only to work smoothly and efficiently but also to ease the workload on emplyees.
Amazon’s European logistics network comprises 29 fulfilment centres and employs almost 24 500 permanent staff. Nine of the centres with 11 000 emplyees are located in Germany. The Fulfilment Centre in Leipzig - with an area of 75 000m² , the equivalent of 11 football pitches - is one of these important sites.
During the visit, Summit participants will take a behind-the-scenes look at the logistical working environment of a typical Amazon fulfilment centre.
