When you order something from Amazon, whether it’s a Christmas gift or an everyday item, your order is likely being processed by some of the 24,000 Hoosiers who work for the company. An Amazon spokesperson says they’re ready to deliver this holiday season.
“We’re really excited and confident we’re gonna deliver for customers this holiday season,” said Andre Woodson, Hr., an Amazon spokesperson, on Inside Indiana Business.
“We’ve made all the investments. We have over 400 fulfillment centers, over a thousand delivery stations, as well as a fleet of 110 aircraft,” said Woodson.
Woodson said some of the Indiana fulfillment centers have some of the latest technology the company employs, including robotics that help with sorting, working along side people.
Woodson was speaking at the Greenwood fulfillment center, which he described as a sub-same-day fulfillment center, which has “hundreds of thousands of items that we can deliver to customers in two hours or less.” He said that’s part of how the company hopes to fulfill holiday orders quickly.
He said Amazon supports indirect jobs and small to medium sized businesses in Indiana, as well as providing direct jobs.
“In Indiana alone we have over 22,000 small to medium-sized businesses as well as authors that continue to sell on our marketplace and platforms to reach millions of customer across the globe,” he said.
