Amid the ongoing battle between Amazon and the GMB union, Retail Week visits Amazon’s LCY3 fulfilment centre in Dartford, Kent, on one of the ecommerce giant’s busiest days of the year

The LCY3 centre opened in August 2021 and spans 547,000 sq ft overlooking the Thames and the Dartford Crossing.

Hundreds of thousands of customer orders are processed through the building each day, with products picked, packed and shipped out in just two hours.
