Introduction

This is an article that documents the Amazon global fulfillment center network.  MWPVL International does not represent Amazon in any way and this article is only for informational purposes.

It all started in the July, 1994 when former investment banker Jeff Bezos left New  York City for Seattle to launch a new on-line book store.  Amazon.com took shape over the next 12 months and the company's web storefront recorded its first sale in July, 1995.  By year-end 1996, Amazon.com had generated $15.7 Million in sales.  On May 15, 1997 Amazon.com raised $54 Million of capital with an IPO on the NASDAQ (AMZN).  The company grew at an astonishing pace with sales reaching $1.6 Billion by the end of 1999.

In 2000, Amazon took a sharp turn for the worse when a quarterly financial loss of $323 Million was reported. A subsequent quarterly loss of $200 Million sent the company share price tumbling by 70%.  Losses continued through 2000 with Amazon reporting a massive $1.4 billion loss for the year.  Speculation on the street was that Amazon would file for bankruptcy and the company's stock hit an all time low.  In 2001, a major cost cutting and restructuring effort restored profitability to the firm and Amazon has not looked back since. Having said this, the company has still not generated any significant profits since this time.

From a distribution strategy perspective, Amazon started with two fulfillment centers in Seattle and Delaware. The original 93,000-square-foot Seattle facility was largely manual and now seems tiny relative to most of the new fulfillment centers being built today.  The 202,000-square-foot facility in New Castle, Delaware was undoubtedly a brave gamble back in November 1997. In 1999, Amazon expanded by adding fulfillment centers in: Fernley, NV; Coffeyville, KS; McDonough, GA (later closed in 2001); Campbellsville, KY; and Lexington, KY.  At the same time, Amazon expanded into Europe with fulfillment centers in Regensburg, Germany; Bad Hersfeld, Germany; and Marston Gate, UK.  Things then went relatively quiet on the expansion front until 2005 and since then Amazon's fulfillment network has been growing at an incredible pace around the world.

As of February 2016, to the best of our knowledge, Amazon operates the following distribution infrastructure:

Currently Amazon operates a variety of distribution centers in North America including fulfillment centers, sortation centers, specialty facilities, redistribution centers, returns centers, 3PL outsourced facilities, prime now hubs, Amazon.Fresh delivery stations and University book stores. Amazon currently operates a network of sortation centers to gain control of the last mile delivery process - for more information about Amazon’s sortation network click here.  In 2015, Amazon invested significantly in the development of its Prime Now Hub network to enable delivery of customer orders within 1 - 2 hours.  A detailed listing of all facilities appears in the table below.  All figures provided are estimates based on our research.  We have included the Zappos.com, Endless.com  and Diapers.com fulfillment centers in our North American figures.  Please note that the square footage figures below exclude mezzanine areas unless otherwise indicated.

Notes:

  • Definitions of fulfillment center types:
    • Big sortable fulfillment centers generally house larger items that can all fit into one box / shipment (e.g. books, DVDs, watches, etc.)
    • Small Sortable fulfillment centers generally house smaller items that can all fit in one box/shipment
    • Non-sortable fulfillment centers generally house items (usually because of size) that can not be sorted into a box with other items.  These are items that cannot be placed onto a conveyor belt for automated sortation.
    • Replenishment centers  generally receive product from vendors and then move these products to and between other fulfillment centers.
    • Customer returns centers process all Amazon customer returns.
    • Specialty sites fulfill specialty items sold by Amazon such as jewelry and clothing.
    • Grocery sites service home delivery of Dry grocery and Perishables merchandise.
    • Sortation centers are generally used to sort packages out by zip code whereby the packages have originated from a fulfillment center elsewhere in the Amazon network.
    • Prime Now Hubs are smaller facilities that stock a limited line of products that are in high demand such that customer orders in highly populated urban centers can be delivered within 1 - 2 hours of order placement.
    • Delivery Stations are smaller facilities designed to service Dry and Perishables food merchandise to customers in key urban locations.
  • Fulfillment centers that have been closed or converted include:
    • McDonough, Georgia. Originally opened as the company's 5th fulfillment center in October, 1999. This 800,000 sq. ft. fulfillment center employed 450 associates and was closed in 2001 after business slumped and cutbacks were necessary.
    • Seattle, Washington:  Restructuring plans in 2001 led to this 93,000 sq. ft. fulfillment center being converted to a seasonal facility.
    • Grand Forks, North Dakota: This 130,000 sq. ft. power tools fulfillment center was originally opened in 1999 when Amazon bought the catalog division of Acme Electric, a local hardware store.  Amazon closed the fulfillment center in March, 2005 eliminating 50 jobs, but the company converted the operation into a call center which in turn created 60 jobs.
    • Red Rock, Nevada: Originally opened in January, 1999. This 322,560 sq. ft. fulfillment center was closed in March, 2009 as part of the closure of 3 fulfillment centers when the company transferred volumes to other facilities to streamline operations.
    • Chambersburg, Pennsylvania: This 420,000 sq. ft. fulfillment center was closed in March, 2009 as part of the closure of 3 facilities when the company transferred volumes to other fulfillment centers to streamline operations.
    • Munster, Indiana: Originally opened in October, 2007, this 75,000 sq. ft. fulfillment center was closed in March, 2009 as part of the closure of 3 facilities.
    • Irving, Texas: Originally opened in 2005, this 493,290 sq. ft. facility was closed in April, 2011 after a tax fight with the state of Texas.  The Texas comptroller's office sent Amazon a demand for $269 million in uncollected sales taxes, plus penalties and interest from 2005 through 2009.  The state contended that Amazon was responsible for sales taxes not collected on on-line sales made in Texas because its fulfillment center was in Irving.  Amazon closed the facility and 119 jobs were lost as a result.
    • The Fernley, NV fulfillment center (786,000 sq. ft.) which was opened in January, 1999 was closed in early 2015.  This facility has been relocated to Reno, Nevada with a newer 634,000 sq. ft. facility.
    • The Coffeyville, KS fulfillment center (TUL1:  915,000 sq. ft.), which was opened in April 1999, was closed in Feb. 2015 as Amazon realigned its distribution network to be closer to larger metropolitan cities. The original strategy that pushed the company into the rural areas of America was based on avoiding the need to charge consumers with sales tax. Since this competitive advantage is coming to a close, the company is now moving its fulfillment centers closer to concentrated points of demand to reduce its outbound transportation expense.

Discussion on the Amazon North American fulfillment Network:

Amazon's fulfillment network strategy is interesting because it does not necessarily reflect an optimized distribution network in terms of serving the U.S. population from optimal geographical locations that are closest to the markets served.  Until 2013, fulfillment center locations in the U.S. have been determined based on state tax considerations.  Sales taxation laws vary from state to state within the country and since we are not experts on this topic, we thought it best to click here for more information on this topic. In short, Amazon sells most of its merchandise through fulfillment centers which are not technically classified as retail stores. As such, the company is technically within the letter of the law to not charge sales tax to consumers with the exception of five states.  This provides Amazon with a significant competitive advantage over conventional retailers that have retail stores since these companies must charge state taxes at the time of purchase (States lose an estimated $23 billion a year in uncollected sales taxes from web retailers).  Currently 27 states have introduced Internet sales tax legislation that is already on the books with more states expected to follow shortly.

In the years leading up to 2013, Amazon invested significant capital into facilities in Arizona, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana, Delaware, South Carolina and more recently Virginia - all states that have made tax collection deals with Amazon in exchange for agreements to guaranteed job creation targets over time.

Amazon has stopped fighting the sales tax war as it is inevitable that its current competitive tex advantage will ultimately go away.  Amazon already collects taxes from Texas, California, New York and Florida and this will eventually apply to most states across the country.  After all of the tax deals go into effect, Amazon will essentially be collecting sales taxes from the majority of American consumers.  Amazon's tax capitulation is directly related to a major shift in the company logistics strategy.  Instead of shipping to customers in highly populated urban centers from massive fulfillment centers constructed in faraway low cost states, the company will in future move to a same day shipping strategy.  The new Amazon distribution strategy calls for the fastest level of order turnaround time (i.e. same day) for all major cities within the United States.  The goal is to enable same-day delivery as an option for the majority of its U.S. customers.  Since the onset of the eCommerce era, this goal has been a dream for many Internet retailers, but the high cost of establishing the required fulfillment network infrastructure has been a critical barrier to entry.  Amazon is now investing heavily to make fast response a reality and we should soon expect to see prime now hubs being added to the network so that the top 50 urban cities in America can be serviced within 1 - 2 hours of order placement.

Amazon has also announced a strategy to make a move into the Grocery industry with home delivery service to be established in major metropolitan markets.  Amazon.Fresh is already established in Seattle, Los Angeles  and San Francisco. The company has been rolling out Amazon.Fresh to numerous other large metropolitan cities with the goal being to enable customers to order food and general merchandise products with same day delivery.

Lastly, it is important to note that Amazon has now set up a new U.S. distribution network of smaller sortation centers that will enable the company to increase its control over the last mile delivery to the customer.  Eligible parcel shipments from nearby fulfillment centers will be sent to a regional sortation center where parcels will be sorted by zip code and then transferred to neighborhood post offices so that the United States Postal Service can perform the delivery for less cost than a parcel carrier such as UPS. This strategy enables Amazon to control the delivery process up to the last mile and it is also a key enabler to providing Sunday delivery in conjunction with USPS (this partnership was announced in November, 2013). Amazon now has over 23 sortation centers up and running in the United States whereby each facility will employ between 100-300 associates.   For a detailed explanation of how the Amazon new sortation network works click here.

The Amazon Fulfillment Network Outside of North America

Currently, Amazon operates fulfillment centers outside of North America in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Czechoslovakia, China, Japan and India. In the United Kingdom there is also a network of 17 smaller delivery stations operated by 3rd party companies to enable fast regional delivery capability. A detailed listing of existing and projected fulfillment centers appears in the table below.  Most countries use a value added taxation (VAT) system to collect retail sales tax up front at the time of purchase hence the taxation issue does not impact Amazon's fulfillment network outside of the United States. Please note that the square footage figures below exclude mezzanine areas in most cases unless otherwise stated.
