What Is an Amazon Fulfillment Center and How Does It Work?
An Amazon fulfillment center is an Amazon warehouse where incoming orders are received, stored, packed and shipped out to customers.

Sellers that sell through Amazon’s platform must conform to Amazon’s standards for packing and shipping products.
