'When Amazon Went From Big to Unbelievably Big' by Alexis C. Madrigal

Alexis C. Madrigal writes for The Atlantic, “The past three years have seen a new Amazon emerge as the company’s physical footprint balloons.” It “now has 288 million square feet of warehouses, offices, retail stores, and data centers. In 2017—the biggest growth year for the company’s properties—alone, it added more square feet of building (74.6 million) than the company had total in 2012 (73.1 million), when it was already the largest online retailer in the world. Amazon has added more building space from 2016 to 2018 than it did in all the rest of its history.”

This “growth has been in the service of logistics, the work of getting stuff you order on the internet to your home or business.”
