Flipkart sets up 200 delivery hubs in Tamil Nadu, announces commitment to employment in the state
Walmart-owned e-commerce giant Flipkart has set up 200 delivery hubs and eight supply chain facilities across Tamil Nadu as part of its wider plan to create more employment opportunities in the state. The business has also onboarded 15,000 kirana partners to speed up delivery times under its Kirana Delivery programme, the business announced on April 11.
“Over the past decade, Flipkart Group has made significant investments to expand its operations in the state to enable and empower our ecosystem partners,” said Flipkart Group’s chief corporate affairs officer Rajneesh Kumar, the Press Trust of India reported. “The aim is to foster entrepreneurial, employment, and skill development opportunities while building share value for all stakeholders. We are committed to the economic development of the state and have consistently invested over the years in building state-of-the-art supply chains and strive to enhance the well being of our supply chain employees.”
Part of Flipkart’s commitment to fostering growth in Tamil Nadu is developing more career opportunities for women in the area, according to the business. In one of its delivery hubs in Chennai, Flipkart has introduced a shift solely run by women employees. The business also runs a ‘Samarth Krishi’ programme designed to train and support local farmers.
“Flipkart has eight supply chain facilities including fulfilment and sortation centres across Tamil Nadu, including Chennai, Coimbatore, and Hosur, which help in connecting sellers to the pan-India consumer base while delivering growth opportunities for the state,” said Flipkart in a statement.
