What is fulfillment you ask? Fulfillment is how we refer to completing or fulfilling a customer’s order and the acts of picking, packing, shipping and delivering their order to meet or exceed their expectations!

We strive to continuously improve and optimize our fulfillment processes to ensure customer satisfaction and exceed their expectations. Here are the types of facilities in each mile segment of fulfillment:

• Fulfillment Centers (North America Customer Fulfillment - NACF Network)

o Large facilities with many associates, that house goods, both big and small (first-mile). These are the types of building that typically come to mind when you hear fulfillment and may contain robotics technology or house the products available when you shop!

• Sort Centers (North America Sort Center - NASC Network)

o Medium-sized facilities, localized close to larger markets, where goods are sorted for delivery (middle-mile). These buildings receive packaged orders and help the last-mile network deliver products on-time more efficiently. Orders are sorted by zip code, region, and size. These buildings operate most similarly to a regional post office or large third-party logistics building.

o Air Sites (Amazon Air Network), Amazon’s dedicated Air network serving middle mile, located near or within major airport hubs. These locations require additional security clearances and background checks, managed by the local port authorities.

• Delivery Stations (Amazon Logistics - AMZL Network)

o Smaller facilities with fewer associates, localized close to larger markets, where goods are delivered directly to customers (last mile). This is the last stop in the life of an order, where it is packed onto a delivery truck before heading out to the customer’s address.
