By Retail4Growth Team | July 24, 2020

With this expansion, Amazon.in will have more than 60 FCs in 15 states, with a total storage capacity of over 32 million cubic feet.

Amazon India gears up to cater to a surge in demand for online buying with the expansion of its fulfillment centres in India. The company aims to set up 10 new Fulfillment Centres (FC) in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Patna, Lucknow, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, Ludhiana and Ahmedabad. The company also said it would expand seven of its existing fulfillment centres.

With this expansion, Amazon.in will have more than 60 FCs in 15 states, with a total storage capacity of over 32 million cubic feet.

The new additions include the specialised network of FCs for large appliances and furniture category and receive centers.

"Amazon India's fulfillment network will be spread across a floor area of more than eight million square feet more than the land size of 100 football fields, housing millions of items," it said in a statement.

The increase in storage capacity is in line with the company's long-term commitment to invest in India, it said.

Amazon announced in May that it would create 50,000 new seasonal roles in delivery and warehousing, anticipating increased demand for online shopping this year.

All new fulfillment centres will be operational before the festive season, the statement added.
