As a Netflix DVD.COM director, I receive a complimentary membership to Netflix DVD and was invited to tour the Netflix DVD Hub in Orlando while I was visiting the area for a conference.
Where has the summer gone?
One moment it was May. Then, in the blink of an eye, it was July. Between blogger conferences for me, soccer practices and games for my boys, and community events for all of us it feels like the last two months rushed by. But I could not let any more time go by without sharing the details of one of my favorite summer field trips from this past June.
While visiting Orlando, I had the opportunity to take a tour of the Netflix DVD Hub in Orlando.
The Netflix DVD Hub in Orlando
The Netflix DVD.COM directors and I took a charter bus to the Netflix DVD Hub in Orlando from our hotel, so I can’t tell you where exactly it’s located. What I can tell you is that it’s in a warehouse among other office buildings. In a space smaller than a warehouse club store (think 22,000 square feet), this Orlando Hub processes approximately 150,000 DVD shipments each week. WOW!
Take a look at my tour of the Netflix DVD Hub in Orlando in this video that I recorded live.
It was interesting to see how their team of 8 associates is able to process all those DVDs each day. Some tasks are done by hand, while others are completely automated. Check out the fascinating facts my fellow directors and I learned while touring the Netflix DVD Hub in Orlando.
