Flipkart strengthens its infrastructure, creates 1.15 lakh seasonal jobs
Walmart-owned e-commerce major Flipkart has strengthened its infrastructure in the country with the addition of 66 new large-scale fulfillment and sortation centres across the country over the past few months.
The company claims to have created 1.15 lakh seasonal jobs to strengthen its supply chain network.
Additionally, the company is also partnering with kiranas and adding new delivery hubs to further boost its last-mile delivery ahead of the festive season.
"E-commerce has been an enabling force, bringing value and access for sellers and consumers alike. Our supply chain infrastructure and technology-enabled digital ecosystem plays a key role in enabling numerous possibilities by creating lakhs of new jobs and offering reliable and tech-enabled transformation for traditional warehousing,” Flipkart group’s CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy said in a statement.
“Flipkart is at the fulcrum creating possibilities for India, driving industry and economy, and helping sellers, artisans, and weavers deliver to the remotest parts of the country. We are committed to making a significant impact on infrastructure creation, employment generation, and creating an ecosystem of entrepreneurship,” he added.
On the back of its infrastructure expansion coupled with brand partnerships, Flipkart is expecting high sales volumes during its upcoming festive Big Billion Days sale.
