Students were able to escape the classroom and go on a field trip when Amazon gave them the opportunity check out its Coblenz Fulfillment Centre in Germany.

Fulfilment is at the heart of the Amazon experience. Amazon delivers millions of products to hundreds of countries worldwide. Its teams possess a wide range of skills and expertise, from business analysis and inventory management to engineering. With more than 80 Fulfilment Centres worldwide, Amazon Fulfilment is growing at a pace that requires the best and brightest talent to be brought in to the company to help it continue to make history.

Experiencing the inner workings of Amazon

Over 1,800 associates outside the holiday season work at the Coblenz Fulfillment center, which is one of over 45 in Amazon's European Fulfillment network that serves customers across Europe.

“From picking the products to packing them and shipping customer orders, the visit taught the students all about the inner workings of an Amazon Fulfilment Centre,” said Marcel Stern, IT-Manager from the Fulfillment Centre.

Supporting STEM education

The visiting students were from Lenster Lycée, a school specializing in STEM education. Amazon in Luxembourg has a special partnership with the school to encourage innovation and STEM education. Amazonian volunteers frequently showcase coding and other tasks to students.

“This was a great opportunity for our students to learn about the work processes in a FC and see what’s behind the Amazon packages,” said Marc Zimer, Physics teacher at  Lenster Lycée. 

A fun and educational field trip

The students had a fabulous day learning about the day-to-day life of Amazon workers at the Fulfilment Centre and had the opportunity to experience many aspects of Amazon operations. 

The students also got behind-the-scenes guided tour of Amazon's Fulfillment Centre.
