Not a factory. This is just a warehouse.

"Just a warehouse" minimizes it. The number of conveyor belts, automations, robots, and sophisticated processes makes an Amazon warehouse more complex than many factories.

True but they don't produce anything. Factory makes something from raw materials and or parts. Warehouse stores products made in a factory. Does Amazon have highly technical process yes but it is still a warehouse not a factory.

If we want to get really technical, Amazon’s are distribution centers, not warehouses or factories. Warehouses store items that are made from factories. Distribution centers receive goods from warehouses and distribute them out for routes and do not typically store items. In and out. Still cool to look at but don’t think Amazon is conducting any tours to the public. Source: work logistics and supply chain and worked at Amazon sort center
