Welcome to Amazon Tours
Explore the world of Amazon operations, from our cutting-edge technology to the people who make Amazon what it is today. Our tours connect you to fulfillment centers all over the globe, showing you what happens behind the scenes when you shop with us.
A look behind the scenes
When you imagine a warehouse, what do you see? Is it full of handcarts and stacks of products—books in one corner, clothing in another? Or is it a huge, bright building with orange robots transporting towers of goods, miles of conveyor belts carrying inventory in every direction, and shipping labels practically flying onto boxes, blown by puffs of air?
Amazon fulfillment centers are not traditional warehouses. Some of our buildings span the equivalent of 28 football fields and can hold millions of products at a given time. On a tour, you will see how products in your online shopping cart get from Amazon to you. It’s a symphony of people and technology that allows us to deliver orders quickly and efficiently to customers around the world.
