New technologies help power faster delivery times, greater selection, and lower costs for our customers.

Robotics
The game changed for Amazon in 2012 when we started introducing robotics into our fulfillment centers. These robotic drive units bring storage pods of inventory directly to our associates, who easily pick customer orders and get them out the door. Today we have more than 100,000 of these drive units operating in 26 of our fulfillment centers around the world.
Sustainability
At Amazon, we are committed to and invested in sustainability because it’s a win all around. It’s good for business, the planet, our customers, and our communities.
