The new locations -- one in the city of Chiba and the other in the Saitama Prefecture city of Sayama, both in the greater Tokyo area -- are scheduled to open this August.


The buildings will have a combined floor space of about 200,000 square meters. Amazon Chiba Minato Fulfillment Center to be created in the city of Chiba will be the company's largest robotized hub in Japan where robots pick up racks and move around.



The automated system will help workers and reduce the time for stocking the shelves and taking items off the racks.


It also allows for more space, and the building can apparently stock up to 40% more inventory than conventional warehouses, meaning that the company will be able to broaden product varieties.
