Fast deliveries through proper storage
If you want to run successful e-commerce, you must first think of your customers. Amazon knows this very well and that is the main reason why it is so successful and known worldwide. For fast delivery times, they build up warehouses throughout Europe. This guarantees that with the help of Amazon Prime, the goods arrive at the customer’s premises the next day – and he can send them back quickly and easily if necessary.
This makes Amazon an attractive online shopping platform for buyers who receive the best possible service here. This is made possible in the first instance by the many warehouses that are spread throughout Europe.

Jobs in the Amazon warehouse: Fulfillment
But how does the work in the Amazon warehouses actually work? After all, they are employers for hundreds and sometimes thousands of people. Basically, the work in the warehouses can be divided into five different tasks:
- Unpacking and checking incoming goods
- Storage of goods
- Recording the location in the system
- Putting together shipments
In the Amazon warehouses, work begins when a user places an order in the online store. This is where the checkout process starts. In the first step, the goods are taken off the shelves, only to be finally packed and shipped. The route of the goods is permanently recorded in the tracking system so that the customer always knows what is happening to his goods and when he will receive them. If he finally receives the goods but is not satisfied with them, he can send them back and they are reprocessed in the warehouse.
In addition to logistics, fulfillment also includes accounting and payment processing. For retailers who like to have everything from a single source, Amazon has developed a special service called Fulfillment by Amazon.

Working Principle in Amazon Warehouses in France
How exactly do the work processes in Amazon’s warehouses actually work? First of all, a distinction must be made between the so-called pickers and the stowers. When Amazon receives an order, the store forwards it to the appropriate warehouse. One of the pickers working here then receives an indication via computer technology as to which goods he has to pick from the shelves and where he can find them. During a tour, he puts together the products for several orders – and the software gives him the fastest route, saving him time.
When he takes the goods from the shelf, he puts them into bins, which the packers then receive and assemble as packages for the customers. Once the parcel has finally been automatically addressed, it travels via conveyor belts to the trucks.
While the pickers take care of incoming orders, the stowers take care of incoming return shipments. If the customer was not satisfied, the Stower must put the returned goods back on the shelves. A handheld scanner shows the Stower where to place the incoming goods. This information is stored in the system so that pickers will know where to find the goods in the future.
