A crazy story from The Verge on Roundup, Montana: population less than 2,000 but millions of Amazon Marketplace packages. “Even by Amazon’s standards, Roundup is an oddity. There’s no fulfilment centre, Amazon’s term for the enormous warehouses where it stores and dispatches goods. In fact, there’s no official Amazon presence of any kind. Instead, Roundup is home to a growing industry of prep centres, businesses that specialise in packing goods to meet the demanding requirements of Amazon’s highly automated warehouses.”
