Increasingly, Amazon is just as much of a logistics company as it is a retailer. The company has been rapidly building an enormous fleet of vehicles and warehouses to rival logistics giants like UPS and FedEx. It added three times more square footage in 2020 compared to the previous year, according to one estimate.
Likewise, Amazon is becoming a major magnet for logistics talent. Amazon alumni go on to run logistics at other retailers. The founder of Amazon Air went on to launch his own logistics startup. And in the case of former Amazon warehouse manager Dave Clark, sometimes they even rise to run the entire company.
With $44 billion in logistics spending just in 2020, the pace of growth leads to a dynamic workplace, according to Amazon’s job listings. The company says senior operations engineers for Amazon Logistics need to be ready to “deal with ambiguity.” Another calls the environment, “fast-paced and rapidly changing.”
Insider analyzed the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification’s 2020 disclosure data for permanent and temporary foreign workers to see how much Amazon paid employees for transportation and logistics roles. US companies report how much base compensation workers are offered when filing paperwork for H-1B visas on behalf of current or prospective foreign workers.
