Amazon India launches new fulfillment centre in West Bengal
Amazon India has strengthened its storage capacity in India, with the launch of a new fulfillment centre in the state of West Bengal.
The new fulfillment centre is the company’s largest in the state, with a storage capacity of 1.2 million cubic feet. With the addition of this new centre, Amazon India’s infrastructure now stands at more than 3.4 million cubic feet, across five fulfillment centres.
This summer, Amazon India invested significantly in its logistics segment. In July, the business announced that it plans to add 10 new fulfillment centres to its warehouse network and expand five existing buildings.
Commenting on the expansion, Akhil Saxena, vice president of customer fulfillment operations at Amazon India, in a statement said: “West Bengal, because of its strategic location, enables us to serve customers in the region and the neighbouring North-Eastern States. Infrastructure expansion is a key step in furthering our vision to make e-commerce a part of everyday life, especially during the festivities.”
The new centre is expected to help 25,000 sellers in West Bengal offer a wider selection and enable faster deliveries within the region and neighbouring states ahead of the upcoming festival season.
The centres are used to sort customer order packages, before they are then sent to delivery stations. Amazon India will host its festive event, ‘Great Indian Festival', from October 17.
