The company said that while using Fulfilment by Amazon, the sellers send their products to Amazon’s fulfilment centre and Amazon picks the product from its store when it’s ordered by someone and this result in the early and fast delivery of a product. This centre will act as storage for electronic products, smartphones, laptops, kitchen appliances, beauty products, household supplies, etc. So, the centre is expected to fulfil all the demands of such products by the customers. These FCs are also equipped with temperature controlled zones to store perishable items like fruits, vegetables, dairy products, etc. So, the centre will be capable of storing all kind of products. The centre will also provide support to local economy by increasing businesses like hospitality, transportation, packaging, etc.  AkhilSaxena, Vice President, Customer Fulfilment, Amazon India said that “With the launch of our largest fulfilment centre in Haryana, we now have a storage capacity of more than five million cubic feet in the state. The FC will enable sellers to use the local infrastructure, save capital and help them grow.” The centre is a part of plan by the company under which it announced to open 67 operational fulfilment centres in 13 states across the country.  Amazon India aims to have a combined storage space of close to 20 million cubic feet by end of this year according to its plan.

With this fulfilment centre in Haryana, the company now has 58 fulfilment centres across 13 states of the country. Earlier in July, the company announced the launch of its third fulfilment centre in West Bengal. Before this, the company announced the launch of 15 FCs for its grocery section in February 2018. It opened its 41st FC in Hyderabad in September last year. The centre is spread over 400,000 square ft. The company is expanding its FCs to enhance its services to customers and has opened six fulfilment centres in Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Jaipur under its scheme. The company said that around 80% sellers are using Fulfilment by Amazon at present and it aims to improve its services to be a leader in the sector. In this festive season, quick and fast delivery of product will act as advantage to the company, so Amazon India is trying to reach each and every customer through its fulfilment centres.
