today Jan 14, 2020
Walmart-owned Flipkart has strengthened its infrastructure with the opening of two new fulfillment centres (FC) or warehouses in the state of Haryana.
The two new fulfillment centres in Haryana are expected to created employment opportunities for around 500 people in the region.
With the new warehouses, Flipkart is looking to strengthen its supply chain infrastructure in North India, and is expected to cater to a wider audience and improve its delivery time in the region.
The FCs are spread across 9 lakh square feet and equipped with highly automated pick, pack, and shipping processes to facilitate safe and timely processing of orders.
"Today, we have one of the strongest supply chain networks in the country, making over 40 million deliveries every month and employ more than 120,000 people across the country. The addition of these two facilities will further strengthen Flipkart's supply chain and building capabilities to enable a strong ecosystem for MSMEs, local manufacturers and in the process create quality local jobs," Flipkart senior vice president, Amitesh Jha, said in a statement.
With these two FCs, Flipkart now has 12 warehouses in Haryana. The company currently employs more than 10,000 people in Haryana across its supply chain and claims to have created thousands of indirect jobs in the state.
