Amazon opens its largest fulfilment centre in India

In May, the company said it would double its storage capacity in India, from its existing figure of 13 million cubic feet, in the next few months. "We are totally focussed on our sellers and buyers trying to innovate on how India buys and sells". 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. 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.

Increasing its fulfilment centres with its state-of-the-art infrastructure, helps Amazon boost the "Fulfilment-By-Amazon" delivery option, which the company sees as its gold-standard service.

"Our fulfilment centre will work closely with local communities, create numerous skilling and employment opportunities for thousands of youth".

Speaking on the occasion, SGK Kishore, CEO, GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL), thanked Amazon for choosing GMR Hyderabad Airport City as the location for their facility.

In June, the company had informed that its seller-base in India doubled to 2 lakh, from 1 lakh previous year.

Besides, the e-commerce giant also has plans to start in Hyderabad a technology development centre which will be largest such unit outside its headquarters in Seattle, the report adds.

Amazon's ramp up comes at a time of stiff competition from Flipkart, which closed two large rounds of funding this year, taking over eBay India's operations with the first and adding SoftBank Group Corp.as an investor in the second.

The Telangana government is planning to bring exclusive and separate policies for retail and logistics, a senior official said today. According to Jayesh Ranjan, principal secretary for IT and industries, while the first draft of the retail trade policy was ready, the officials are now working on formulating the contents for "logistics policy". It is also likely to boost business in Hyderabad, where several other e-commerce companies are also based.

With more than 10,000 sellers in Telangana, delivery time in the region has improved by leaps and bounds, claims Amazon.
