Warehouse one of the largest companies in the US.
That’s a mystery. Who in the world can sell almost 20 million products in 24 hours? These figures are the official statistics of Amazon. Hard to imagine all that many things, but we will try showing you how to look like a warehouse largest online retailer Amazon.com.
The average buyer rarely gets the opportunity to look at the warehouse, which receives its order, sorted, transported to the shelves, packaged and sent to the address.
Josh teeter, CEO of Amazon, in Phoenix, said that inside there are no robots. Well, except that sometimes driver used truck, but no more. But the warehouse is open all ocean workers, who with the help of barcode scanners to find the right product in this huge space.
So in 2010, it sold 13 million products in 24 hours, and in 2011 – 17 million. And all the mountain products apart people, not robots.
All warehouses employs over 50 thousand workers to cope with the huge influx of orders.
Amazon uses the so-called chaotic storage system. This is when all the products laid out in a random order and there are no separate departments of a warehouse for books, electronics, clothing. Each product is assigned a barcode and a scanner and labour searches for products.
Maintaining the random order of the items in the warehouse, there is no confusion. Workers are very easy to find the location of the desired product. Once the position is found, it is checked again and only then is ready to be shipped.
The advantage of the chaotic storage system is that it is more flexible in comparison with conventional storage systems. If there is a major change in the range, the company is not necessary to plan separate space for new goods in advance.
In addition, the space is used more efficiently. In the traditional system of storage free space in the warehouse may be empty, because it is reserved for specific products, which is not available.
