India’s Flipkart recently opened two big fulfilment centres (FCs) in Haryana’s Farrukhnagar to strengthen its supply chain infrastructure in north India. The FCs will enhance its ability to support the delivery and supply chain logistics of a wide selection of products offered by the state’s sellers, giving them access to a national market.

With these two FCs, Flipkart now has 12 assets in Haryana, including supply chain infrastructure for large appliances, non-large (including mobiles, apparel), grocery and furniture, taking the total asset capacity in the state to over 20 lakh square feet, said a company press release.

These assets are spread across Binola, Bilaspur, Luhari and Ballabgarh. During the last festive season, Flipkart’s FCs in Haryana served up to 40 per cent of the total number of orders from across India.

Flipkart’s new investment in the state will create over 5,000 jobs, which will also include employment opportunities for women and people with different abilities.

The company now employs more than 10,000 people in Haryana across its supply chain and has created thousands of indirect jobs. The company has also partnered with the National Skill Development Corporation’s Logistics Skill Sector Council to provide training on the nuances of supply chain and delivery, to ensure skill development, career progression and growth for its employees.
