In a blog post, Gopal Pillai, vice president of Amazon Distribution and Fulfillment Solutions, said, “Amazon Warehousing & Distribution addresses critical supply chain challenges and helps sellers grow and manage their business while significantly cutting costs.”

According to Amazon, the new service is a continuation of its multi-year investment in its warehouse and distribution network to support sellers and better serve customers.
