Amazon Warehouses in France to Shutter Following a Court Order

The ecommerce giant is appealing the decision


As warehouse worker-turned-advocate Chris Smalls calls on Amazon to shut down its U.S. warehouses, reports emerged today that a court order is forcing the ecommerce giant to close all six of its warehouses in France until at least April 20.

Amazon confirmed it is temporarily suspending operations at its fulfillment centers in France following a court decision.

A French court ruled Tuesday that Amazon must carry out a more “thorough assessment of the risk of coronavirus contagion” at its warehouses in the country, according to Reuters.
