If you’ve been following us on Facebook or Twitter, you probably know that we are real nerds about Amazon’s fulfillment operations. We even collect pictures of Amazon warehouses. (Email us if you’ve got more pictures). So, obviously, this blog post has been long over due.
Why are we obsessed about Amazon trivia? Because many of our customers sell through the Amazon market place (a.k.a Seller Central), and manage their own warehouses / fulfillment operations. We also get a lot of questions about Amazon’s FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) service.
So here it goes.
