Introduced to augment skill development for the logistic industry, Flipkart’s centre of excellence in Bengaluru is spread across an area of 1,500 sq ft and hosts new-age classrooms equipped with computers and projectors for all round development of the candidates.

Flipkart has co-developed the training module along with LSC and KSDC to train candidates on the various nuances of storage and distribution, customer management and material handling. This also includes imparting knowledge on local transportation laws and regulations and giving students holistic knowledge of the end-to-end supply chain.

Karnataka Kaushalya Mission, which is part of the Karnataka state department of skill development and entrepreneurship and livelihood, and LSC are helping mobilise aspirants for the centre.
