From what I've seen, they like a mix of rural for larger facilities and outskirts of metro for same day deliveries, but I haven't studied their more recent acquisitions very much.

One of their early warehouses was an old textbook warehouse just outside of Coffeyville KS. It has rail and a small two lane highway to Tulsa (about an hour and a half drive).  The highway is now 4 lane the entire way. It was only 4 lane, 2 lanes each direction, for about 1/2 of the way, when Amazon bought the place. Amazon isn't using that warehouse any more, though, which seems odd to me since it's centrally located in U.S. (which is what appealed to them when they bought it).

Honestly, yeah, very tiresome. What really makes me crazy is 1, stuff getting misplaced because of constant moving (not just of booth, biz, and product, but personal effects too -- e.g. I just had to replace two credit cards that I know are simply lost somewhere in booth or RV. Probably slid between sofa and wall or somewhere similar in RV) and 2, having to play catch up on stuff around house, and the time we're home always seems to be when it's foul or simply miserable weather, making it a pain for outside stuff that needs doing.

Next year will be better though what with not doing Kansas any more. YaY!!

* Amazon Central / Removal Order Issues
« Last post by uncleleroy on November 30, 2017, 08:25:19 PM »
Got a nice little surprise when some of my removal order arrived on my front porch.  Missing 18 units of one product and 7 of another product. Photos attached. Chat support sending this to "an internal team" for investigation into the missing units and have to wait at least 24 hours for a response...

Wanna bet I won't get reimbursed for something that is obviously missing because the package came open during shipment?

* Amazon Central / Re: FBA Feedback Not Removed

I believe it would be in Amazon's best interest to remove any negative that is left for an FBA order.
It's smart in the long run.
Buyers don't always know they are buying from a 3rd party seller and believe that if they leave a negative Amazon will swoop in and take care of the purchase.
Nope.

YAY.
Had one yesterday that was an Amazon Fulfilled and arrived damaged.
Filed for strike thru/removal.
Nope.
Filed a second time.
Nope.
Upgraded to Team Leader.
Finally, yesterday afternoon the team leader...Oh of course that should be struck through...Amazon warehouse shipped the item and it arrived damaged.

Not right that we the sellers have to work through the bots to get this issue taken care of.

Yep.
I hear you loud and clear.
Product Review.
A feedback regarding color was recently left for me.
Item has white background.
I checked on 2 iPads, 1 iPad mini, 1 laptop, 1 desktop computer.
All show background of item with a white background.
I can't help customer's settings on their means of viewing Amazon are skewed...the item has a white background.
Customer states item page looks gold.
Whuuuut?
Plus, item delivered late by Amazon.

Removal or strike-thru of feedback.
Nope.

Modified to add...
I sent this to issue to jeff.
I pay high fees to Amazon to insure my customers receive their package on time.
And also to insure that I am treated as a priority as a seller.

I hate having to do this, but if he would only look at the 'little' folks selling on his venue, he would understand that we work hard and follow the rules.

Customer orders item via FBA. Amazon fails to deliver. Customer leaves negative feedback. Amazon says "screw you". Amazon leaves feedback as is. Leroy reopens case. Leroy waits for someone who can't speak English to say "screw you".

Hubbie was talking about the deal with Whole Foods (organic turkey) that Amazon Prime members receive .50 off a lb
Closest Whole Foods is about 45 minutes away from me but I've been meaning to check into the extra discounting for Amazon Prime members.
