With the rapid growth of artificial intelligence information technology, all walks of life are gradually turning their industries to artificial intelligence.
Amazon recently announced that it will open a multi-story, large-scale robotic fulfillment center in Ontario, California . The facility, which has a total area of 4.1 million square feet and is as high as five floors, is one of the largest distribution centers Amazon has set up across the United States since 2019. Rent in the industrial area where the distribution center is located is about $ 6.75 per square foot, which may have doubled now, sources said.
The distribution center uses state-of-the-art robotics to handle small, sortable items. And, all packages must be no larger than 18 inches and sized to fit a mechanized conveyor system and mobile shelving units, a project Amazon has invested $350 million in.
Its director of investor relations, Dave Fildes, said Amazon will continue to increase construction, with a focus on expanding one-day and same-day deliveries for Amazon Prime members and giving the company "more certainty that it can get items from point A to point B."
As of now, Amazon has announced plans to build 11 multi-story robotic fulfillment centers. Thanks to robotics, the number of workers in each distribution center is about 1,000, Amazon's labor expenditure will be greatly reduced, and the sorting time will be greatly improved.
