Flipkart to build mega logistics hub near Kolkata

Mar '18
Indian e-commerce company Flipkart is planning to invest a substantial amount to set up a second integrated logistics hub near Kolkata after the one in Bangalore to cater to all eastern and north-eastern states and offer employment to around 5,000, according to company vice president Amitesh Jha. The 40-lakh-sq-ft logistics hub will be spread over 80 acres.

Refused to disclose the exact amount of investment in the project, Jha told a top Indian business daily that the company will buy land on a Delhi- or Mumbai-bound highway near Kolkata.

The hub, which will host several fulfilment and sorting centres, will improve supply chain efficiency and reduce costs by deploying mechanised warehousing and intelligent transport systems, he added.

It may also provide indirect jobs for 15,000 people in supporting logistics activities, trucking, clearing and forwarding services and food catering.

The first phase covering 15 lakh sq ft is planned to be completed in 18 months. The hub is planned to be made carbon-neutral and a net power exporter by deploying solar panels on its warehouse roofs. (DS)
