Description: This passage is mainly about amazon hub login. In this passage, we can know that Amazon recently invites us with our unblinking cameras and endless questions for a peek inside its newest logistical lair in Lakeland, Florida.
You click there and a box appears here, ecommerce is a magic trick that repeats millions of times a day, for a peek at what happens between we visited its inventor, this is where an Amazon delivery begins, it’s a building that’s one third of a mile long, ordinarily it’s off-limits but not today, Amazon opens the closed doors and opens my eyes, I don’t think it’s well understood.
With a footprint equal to 59 football fields, this Amazon Fulfillment Center is simply mammoth, we have the packing, the picking, the slamming, the shipping and the receiving, its home to an army of employees has over 101 6 ton pallet slinging robots, we affectionately call it Robo stow and there are a squat of box shuffling cyborgs.
We like to think of it as a symphony between robots and our great associates, we have found a secret at our feet, the floor is covered in tiny QR codes, it seems like a chess board, eyes and the robots bellies read the codes and broadcast their position, choreography that keeps your shipment on time and avoids collisions, they know exactly where to go.
Click that yellow button, set these robots in motion, sometimes within second, but your order is not handled by Android alone, drive units, the Amazon robots are bringing items from where they’re stored to associate so that associate can pick customer orders and get them ready to ship out.
A real-life human being boxes every Amazon order, as with every department, there’s simply no guesswork in choosing the right box, how do I know which box to pick? Our technology will tell you, the computer will tell us the perfect sized box to fit that item, from there it’s time to slam it, fortunately slam isn’t an action, slam is an Amazon acronym for adding your address and sending your order home.
Stand label apply manifest, orders are constant, we process thousands and thousands of packages, the exact number is confidential, but we know that Amazon sales hit a record of eighty eight billion dollars in 2014 driven by new same-day delivery and selection that no other retailers can touch.
You can’t fathom the amount than the four that we have billing, it looks like a lot and it is, Amazon says those shelves are home to 1 million different items, I think the difficult estimate realized, we even spot a toilet in stock, you name it and we have it, chaos and a supersonic conveyor are what we have expected.
The manager Chris Mona has explained that speed isn’t everything, the important thing is a flow, order levels fluctuate and there are rush hours, Amazon says that its software regulates the line to maintain a steady pace, in order to have 1 million unique items in this facility, you have to be able to do that.
As gaping, gargantuan, gigantic, as this fulfillment center is, it’s not alone, we have a hundred and nine fulfillment centers worldwide, locally 59 football fields probably aren’t enough either, our tour guide hints at expansion though they wouldn’t touch the drone thing, we build this facility with room to grow, so stay tuned.
Amazon has taken heat for claims of harsh conditions at its warehouses, perhaps that’s why it grants us access behind the locked gate, and let us interview Diane Ortiz, I am happy to have you, she recently joins Amazon, Diane works 10-hour a day and four days a week, who is paid more than the national average and disputes the company’s critics.
I think they’ll be in extremely surprised, the other reason for our visit is you, this invitation is a rare opportunity to give shoppers an insider’s view, that’s an awesome place order, to marvel at the robots, we are very excited about the technology, to admire the inventory and to put a face on the company that with the click of a button, it takes more, deliver a-to-z and i love it.
Chris comes on Fox 13 News, now although Chris has got a private tour there, the public can visit Amazon’s fulfillment center as well, there are two catches, first only select centers that are open and the closest to Tampa is in Tennessee, second you’re going to have to wait until 2016, you are going to wait till New Year’s tourists stop for the holiday rush.
