Amazon Fulfilment Centre Visit - Manchester

Across the globe, Amazon has more than 175 operating fulfilment centres and more than 150 million square feet of space where employees pick, pack, and ship Amazon customer orders to the tune of millions of items per year. Amazon fulfilment network is made up of state-of-the-art technology and a variety of building types and sizes to support customer fulfilment.

Joining this tour will allow you to experience the journey of an item from the moment it arrives on site as stock to the moment it leaves as a packed customer order. On this journey Amazon will touch on each of the core processes that the item moves through and cover how and why they use them. The tour will conclude with a Q&A with Amazon team members. More information can be found on the Amazon Fulfilment Centre website.

Important things to know:

  • Amazon requires the names and dates of birth for all attendees prior to arriving on site.
  • ID required - all guests above the age of 18 must bring a valid government-issues ID for check-in.
  • All guests must wear flat, closed toe and closed back shoes (no sandals, clogs or high heels). Amazon recommends wearing comfortable shoes/trainers. Additionally, long hair must be pulled above the shoulders and long-hanging jewellery, scarves and ties are not permitted.
