Amazon India to open 7 new warehouses
May '17
Amazon India plans to open 7 new warehouses in India in order to expand its operations in the country. These warehouses are expected to generate employment for about 4,000 people. The total number of Amazon fulfilment centres (FCs) in India is likely to be 41 by the end of the next month. The company has committed to invest $5 billion in India.

The new FCs will double the storage capacity of Amazon India as compared to last year, Akhil Saxena, customer fulfilment vice president of Amazon India, told a news agency. He said that the company is investing to strengthen its infrastructure to match its pace of business expansion in the country.

Amazon will open 14 FCs in India by the end of this year, added Saxena. These new centres will come up in Haryana, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.

In a bid to fulfil increasing seller and customer demands, Amazon will also expand the capacity of its existing FCs in Delhi and Ahmedabad.

The addition of new FCs is expected to increase Amazon's delivery speed and enable SMBs to cost-effectively fulfil their orders, concluded Saxena. (KD)
