Fulfilment by Amazon Generates 5,000 New Full-Time Jobs in USA

amazonFulfilment by Amazon (FBA) – the warehousing solution for retailers operated by Amazon – has announced 5,000 new full-time jobs in the United States. The current staffing in Amazon’s US fulfilment centres is over 20,000 full-time employees.

The new fulfilment network positions are being created at the following FBA centres:

  • Breinigsville, Pennsylvania.
  • Middletown, Delaware.
  • Chattanooga, Tennessee.
  • Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
  • Charleston, South Carolina.
  • Patterson, California.
  • Chester, Virginia.
  • Phoenix, Arizona.
  • Coppell, Texas
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Haslet, Texas
  • San Bernardino, California.
  • Hebron, Kentucky.
  • Spartanburg, South Carolina.
  • Indianapolis, Indiana.
  • Tracy, California.
  • Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Amazon fulfilment centres allow small retailers access to state of the art picking & packing across the globe and are a major source of growth for the technology giant. Businesses pay a monthly fee to stock items at centralised Amazon warehouses, so that when an item is sold through Amazon, it is automatically shipped out without the need for the merchant to organise logistics.

Merchants can also use FBA when they sell an item through their own website or shop to benefit from quicker dispatch times and lower shipping costs. FBA sellers also benefit from preferential listing settings on the Amazon website.

In the three months ending 30th June 2013, Amazon’s net services sales generated $2,952,000,000 for the business, compared with $2,043,000,000 net for the same period in 2012. In contrast, product sales generated a net total of $12,752,000,000 for the second quarter of 2013.

  1. Great news for Amazon.com and its FBA merchants, but I wonder if their working conditions are still under scrutiny.
