Amazon has ramped up storage capacity to 3.2 million cubic feet in Telangana to enable faster deliveries to customers in the region.
"Amazon India’s latest investment with the launch of their 5th fulfilment centre in Telangana, here in Shamshabad, Telangana evidently signifies the growing interest of large global enterprises in the state. The fulfilment centre will enable thousands of small & medium businesses selling locally created products such as apparels, handlooms & handicraft to service customers seamlessly across the country & the globe. It will also fuel the growth of ancillary businesses such as packaging, transportation, logistics, and hospitality across the state. We are committed to enabling the ease of doing business and enabling companies like Amazon.in to expand their presence in Telangana," said Telangana industries minister KT Rama Rao during the launch event.
"Our vision is to transform the way India buys and sells. At Amazon, we have been consistently investing in our infrastructure and delivery network, so we can increase our speed of delivery and provide a superior experience to both – customers and sellers. With the launch of our largest fulfilment center here in Telangana, we strongly believe that we will be able to better serve our customers with one-day & two-day delivery. The fulfilment centre will enable sellers to use local infrastructure, save capital and help them grow their businesses," said Akhil Saxena, vice president, India Customer Fulfilment, Amazon India.
"Our fulfilment centre will work closely with local communities, create numerous skilling and employment opportunities for thousands of youth. We continue to work with sellers in Telangana providing them with a marketplace to sell their products to millions of customers and scale their business to greater heights. With more than 10,000 sellers in Telangana, the selection offered by sellers in the state for immediate delivery has grown more than 120 per cent this year as compared to last year," Akhil added.
"We are happy to welcome Amazon to Hyderabad and we thank them for choosing GMR Hyderabad Airport City as the location for their largest fulfilment centre in India. We congratulate Amazon on the opening of this fulfilment center, which we are sure will open up large direct employment opportunities & new economic growth avenues in the state of Telangana. We are also proud to have partnered with Amazon to build and deliver this technology-driven facility in record time," said SGK Kishore, CEO-GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd.
Leveraging its fulfilment centers with state-of-the-art infrastructure, Amazon provides a delightful customer experience through its program - Fulfilment By Amazon (FBA). When using FBA, sellers across India send their products to Amazon’s fulfilment centres and once an order is placed, Amazon picks, packs, and ships the order to the customer, provides customer service and manages returns on behalf of the sellers. Orders fulfilled by Amazon are eligible for Cash on Delivery, Guaranteed Next-Day, Same Day, Release Day, Morning delivery and Sunday delivery. Sellers always have the flexibility to choose the number of products they want to have fulfilled by Amazon and scale according to their business requirements. (RR)
