A Look Into Amazon’s Giant Storage Warehouses

You might wonder where the millions of items you see on amazon.com come from. The world’s largest online store has multiple gigantic warehouses strategically placed near shipping ports. Some of the mega warehouses reach 1.2 million square feet in size (111,484 sq m). Amazon uses a unique system of organization called the “Chaotic Storage.” Although computers are the heart of the operation, amazon still has to hire over 65,000 workers to cover the gigantic warehouses.




The unique organizational method called chaotic storage is much different then you might expect  There is no permanent areas for items. The items are solely organized by the bare code  The system knows what shelves are available and the time the item arrives to the time it exits. IT a complex system, with minimal error. The system has many perks compared to the usually way of storage. By using the bar codes  workers do no need to know where certain types of items are located. They just look at the computer screen for the bar code  Once an item is purchased  the computer will even optimize the most efficient path for the worker to locate the item. Kitchens should have sensors telling a computer it’s location. Imagine how much easier it would be to make that strenuous Christmas dinner!
