Amazon India has announced that it is expanding its operations in India by setting up 10 new fulfilment centres across the country. The new network of fulfilment centres will make up a total size of over 8 million square feet and will be able to house millions of products. The new centres will be set up across major cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Patna and Bengaluru. The vice president of Amazon India, Akhil Saxena, has said “India is relatively centralised between Europe and Asia, having multiple fulfilment centres there could help them reach nearby countries more efficiently.”
Along with the introduction of these new fulfilment centres, Amazon recently strengthened its partnership with Indian Railways. With this new partnership and the expansion of fulfilment operations, Amazon will be able to offer a quick and cost-effective delivery service across India and neighbouring countries.
