Amazon India launches its largest fulfilment centre in Bengaluru
E-commerce major Amazon India has strengthened its infrastructure in India with the launch of its largest fulfillment centre in the country, with a storage capacity of more than 2.4 million cubic feet, in the southern city of Bengaluru.
Amazon has been investing heavily to increase its infrastructure capabilities in the country and the latest expansion is expected to help around 42,000 sellers in Karnataka expedite their deliveries during the upcoming festive season.
Additionally, the new centre is expected to create employment opportunities for locals in the nearby regions.
Commenting on the expansion, Prakash Dutta, Amazon India’s vice-president of customer fulfillment operations and supply chain, in a statement said: “Karnataka is an important region for us, and we are committed to strengthening the local economy in the state. Our focused investment in infrastructure and technology is a testament to that commitment.”
“With the launch of our largest fulfillment centre in the country, we look forward to creating thousands of more work opportunities with competitive pay. This expansion will provide sellers with closer access to Amazon’s fulfillment offerings, and customers with faster delivery on a wider selection of products,” he added.
Amazon has been on an expansion spree amid the Covid-19 disruptions and earmarked a significant amount to strengthen its pan-India fulfillment network across the country.
