The Polish Amazon marketplace is constantly growing. Storing in and shipping from Poland has naturally increased as well. With the Amazon Central Program (CEP) for example, inventory can be stored in Germany and fulfilled from Polish and Czech warehouses.

Amazon Warehouses Poland – here you can find all Polish Amazon fulfilment centers:
There are already some Amazon warehouses in Poland. This is partly because of the CEP mentioned above and because Amazon launches Amazon.pl in 2021.
At the moment, Amazon fulfilment centres in Poland can be found in:
- Bienlany Wrocławskie (x2)
In Świebodzin, the 10th fulfilment centre will be available soon.
Storage in Poland for fast deliveries
As an e-commerce retailer, if you focus on your customers, you are already well on the way. That is the open secret of Amazon’s success. To provide the best possible service to customers, fast delivery times for orders or returns are essential. This is the only way to ensure that goods arrive at the customer the very next day using Amazon Prime.
To be able to guarantee these fast delivery times, short delivery routes are a prerequisite. That is why Amazon sets up warehouses in every country where they sell their goods. The same applies accordingly to our neighbouring country Poland.
Fulfillment in the Amazon warehouse
In short, the Amazon warehouses are responsible for the storage, dispatch and return of goods. Hundreds to thousands of people work here in five different areas to ensure customer satisfaction:
- Unpacking and checking incoming goods
- Storage of goods
- Recording the location in the system
- Putting together shipments
Mit eingehender Bestellung im Online-Shop wird die Arbeit in den Amazon-Warenlagern aufgenommen. Die Kaufabwicklung beginnt. Dazu werden die Waren aus den zahlreichen Regalen herausgesucht, verpackt und schließlich an den Kunden versandt. Was genau mit der Ware passiert, wird im Tracking festgehalten, sodass Amazon und Kunde jederzeit Bescheid wissen, wie der Status Quo aussieht und wann die Ware das Ziel erreicht. Selbiges gilt für den Prozess, wenn der Käufer mit seiner Ware nicht zufrieden ist und sie zurückschicken möchte.
In addition to logistics, accounting and payment processing are also part of fulfillment. Amazon combines the services in the so-called Fulfillment by Amazon to help retailers with the implementation.
VAT Registrations & Returns
Working method in the Amazon warehouses in Poland
But what happens in detail in the warehouses when an order is received? At that moment, Amazon digitally transfers the information to the responsible warehouse. Here, a so-called picker receives the order and instructions as to which goods he has to collect from the shelves. So that he doesn’t have to run several times, he always takes care of several orders at once. The software tells him which route is the most efficient, so he can save time. He places the goods from each order in different containers.
In the next step, these containers receive the packers. They in turn now pack the goods of the individual orders and automatically address the finished package by means of the appropriate software. In the last step, the packages are transported to the trucks via conveyor belts.
In addition to the pickers, the Amazon warehouses also have the Stower. Unlike the pickers, they don’t take care of the dispatch of goods, but the return shipment. If a customer returns his goods, the Stower has to put them back on an empty shelf. His handheld scanner tells him which one is the closest. The software stores the information so that in the future the picker knows where it is.

Pickers and Stowers are now increasingly supported by robots that take over the running work and can transport a total weight of up to 340 kg.
