Who we are:

The vision of Seller Fulfillment Services (SFS) is to contribute to Amazon's mission around Price, Selection and Convenience through Sellers. We do this by building fulfillment and transportation solutions for millions of Sellers that are part of multi-billion-dollar business where they ship directly from their own warehouses while raising the bar on the Customer's delivery experience pre and post purchase. The business is serviced by a mature tech stack that has been built over the last 10 years allowing the Sellers to delight Customers with the high Amazon bar, while innovating in key areas to better serve the unique needs of Sellers. The SFS group has a track record of strong innovation for Sellers and continues to Think Big about how to push more capabilities, such as evaluating the optimal regionality of an offer or optimal choice of shipping services for an order, into the Sellers hands, unlocking continued scaling of Sellers and adding Prime selection that doesn't fit with Amazon's traditional FBA model.
