Amazon India has expanded its fulfilment infrastructure in the South Indian state of Telangana with a couple of new fulfilment centres in Hyderabad.
The e-commerce retailer said that the expansion will help sellers provide a broader selection and help in faster deliveries of customer orders within the region and neighbouring states prior to the upcoming festive season in India.
With the new fulfilment centres in Hyderabad, Amazon India has taken its storage capacity to over 4.5 million cubic feet. The e-commerce has four fulfilment centres in Telangana to cater to its more than 23,000 sellers in the state.
Amazon India said that it has also enlarged an existing sort centre to provide overall sortation area of over one lakh square feet, in Telangana.
Prakash Kumar Dutta – Amazon India Director of Fulfilment Centres & Supply Chain said: “Amazon and Telangana have partnered on several initiatives since the commencement of our operations in India with our largest fulfilment centre in the country located in Hyderabad. We are delighted to extend the partnership further with this additional investment in the State helping us deliver safely to our customers at their doorstep.
“This network expansion will help create thousands of work opportunities and will further help us support small & medium businesses in the region to fulfil their customer orders seamlessly. It will also provide an economic boost to the Telangana e-commerce ecosystem across packaging, transportation and logistics.
“Safety of customers, sellers and our associates and security of livelihood have never been more critical, and we are happy to contribute to both ahead of this festive season.”
Amazon India said that its expansion in Telangana is a part of its recently revealed intentions to add 10 new fulfilment centres and expand seven existing sites across the country.
