Amazon. COM, a Fortune 500
company based in Seattle, Washington, is the global leader in e-commerce.
Since Jeff Bozos started Amazon. COM in 1995, we have significantly
expanded our product offerings, international sites, and worldwide network of
fulfillment and customer service centers. Today, Amazon. COM offers
everything from books and electronics to tennis rackets and diamond
jewelry. We operate sites in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan,
Canada, and China (Joyo.com) and maintain over 25 fulfillment centers
around the world which encompass more than 12 million square feet.
This evolution of Amazon. COM from Web site to e-commerce partner to
development platform is driven by the spirit of innovation that is part of
the company's DNA. E-commerce is still in its infancy. In the years to
come, you'll see Amazon. COM create new technologies, expand into more
geographies and continue to improve the lives of shoppers and sellers
around the world. -----
