Myntra launches fulfilment centre in Kolkata to boost logistics ahead of festive season
On September 27, Flipkart’s fashion arm Myntra announced that it has launched a new fulfilment centre in Kolkata as well as three mother hubs, 12 satellite hubs, and 171 distribution centres ahead of the festive season.
Expecting increased orders during the upcoming festive and sale season, Myntra has enhanced its capacity for higher storage volumes of merchandise and optimised its last-mile delivery services, the Press Trust of India reported. The eastern region is an important market for the online fashion retailer and its augmented logistics capacity will enable the business to continue its expansion in the area.
Myntra’s new fulfilment centre in Kolkata has the capacity to store up to 45 lakh products in its over two lakh-square-foot space which significantly boosts its delivery capacity in the area. The new facility will also create job opportunities for around 2,500 people with the potential for more employment opportunities in future.
Myntra is gearing up to hold its 'Big Fashion Festival' from October 3 to 10 when it expects to onboard around 1.1 million first time customers. The business has joined with a wide range of celebrities to promote the sale including Kiara Advani, Vijay Deverakonda, and Hrithik Roshan and will offer up to 80% discounts on a wide range of fashion items.
