Created in July 1994, Amazon has become the best known and most used online shopping site on the web.
Indeed, Amazon receives on average 19 million visitors per month.
In other words, 1 out of 3 French user consults it every day.
Currently, Amazon is one of the big 4 of the Internet alongside Google, Facebook and Apple.
Amazon, it's :
The largest warehouse of Amazon is located in Lauwin-Planque (near Lille) in France and its size is 90,000 m2.
This equates to 16 football fields.
In this warehouse, there are more than 2 million different references. This equates to 2,000 hypermarkets.
To avoid unpleasant surprises, each item is checked during the preparation of your order.
Then, each package is automatically weighed and checked to ensure that the products are the right ones and that they are not missing.
This avoids returning packages unnecessarily and also avoids the customer and Amazon from wasting time.
To improve the management of products and orders, each (physical) site of Amazon is specialized in one type of products.
In short, at Amazon, everything is done to automate and improve the management of products, packages, orders and storage of products.
