What Is AMZL_US?
Amazon is a massive service. In 2017 alone, the company shipped over 5 billion items worldwide. They’re also a very efficient company, always looking for ways to reduce their expenses and improve their supply chain (which translates into lower prices for their customers). One large expense that Amazon has to deal with is shipping. In the past, the company handled all their shipping through third-party shipping carriers and delivery service providers. This could mean familiar services like USPS, FedEx, or DHL, as well as lesser-known “last mile” services like Ontrac While Amazon still accomplishes many of its deliveries with these services, the company has also created its own shipping service. It’s called Amazon Logistics (often abbreviated as AMZL). AMZL_US refers to any deliveries that Amazon makes in the United States using its delivery service. Whenever you see “AMZL_US” associated with an Amazon order, it lets you know that Amazon Logistics is the one making the delivery.
The global logistics footprint
At more than 243.5 million square feet, if all of Amazon’s distribution and fulfillment space were laid out side by side, it would spread across a quarter of Manhattan. That’s 258 operational facilities in the United States and another 486 distributed around the world. In the United States, this sprawling network is defined by a range of different services, from Prime Now hubs near urban centers to fresh food and Whole Foods delivery goods, and, of course, fulfillment, sortation and delivery stations. Amazon also operates nine inbound cross-dock centers, used to consolidate or break imported shipments and then funnel them to the relevant fulfillment centers. Across 20 additional countries, Amazon’s other centers are predominantly focused on fulfillment and delivery stations, while some countries, such as Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Singapore and Japan also have Prime delivery facilities.

Can you call the cops if someone stole your package?Asked By: Francesco Boi Date created: Mar 28, 2022
If you spot theft, report it to your local police department. Or, if you can prove no one ever showed up at your door, the carrier (if you’re the shipper) or shipper (if you’re the recipient) will be forced to refund you.

Consider The PARCELBIN Package Lock Box
If you would like to order from Amazon or other online sources without worrying about theft, consider a PARCELBIN package lock box. With a PARCELBIN in place, the delivery person will have a secure location to leave the package at any time of day. Then, you can simply retrieve the package from the bin when you arrive home.
Between the protection from thieves and inclement weather, this is a gorgeous lock box that you will be happy to have on your side.
