Slideshow: A Day in the Life of Digi-Key @ IEEE Spectrum.

RAPID FIRE: A staff of 2600 keeps Digi-Key’s facility in Thief River Falls, Minn., operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Within minutes of receiving an order, human “pickers” locate the desired parts and send them along via conveyor belt for packing. A recent expansion, including 38 new pick stations, 26 new pack stations, and 2600 additional meters of conveyer belt, means the facility can now process 24 000 orders a day, or one every 3.6 seconds.

Wow, incredible slideshow.
