A special Pi visit to Amazon's Tilbury fulfilment centre in Essex
Tilbury is one of the Amazon fulfilment centres in the UK to use Amazon Robotics technology. During the 60-minute tour, visitors will have the chance to see how Amazon employees – working alongside innovative technologies including Amazon Robotics – pick, pack and ship small items such as books, electronics and consumer goods.
If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at packing one of the iconic Amazon boxes, this may be your chance!
We will be running two tours, 10h45 and 13h15. For the morning tour we need to catch the 09h41 train from Fenchurch Street station. For the afternoon tour we catch the 12h11 train. It is a 40 minute journey and a 10 minute walk at the other end.
