Amazon.in will set up six new Fulfilment Centres (FCs) — in Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Jaipur and Mumbai — to meet the needs of its growing seller base in the country. This is also in preparation for the upcoming festive season.

With the launch of these new FCs, Amazon.in will have a total of 2.5 million square feet of storage space across 10 states in the country.

The FCs will allow Amazon.in to offer its Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) service to several thousand more small and medium businesses in these states and empower them to gain access to and service customers across the country at significantly low operating costs. Over 80 per cent of sellers on Amazon.in currently use its fulfilment services.

“We remain committed to investing in our fulfilment and logistics capability to enable and empower sellers to serve customers nationally at lower costs. It stands testament to our larger commitment of making deep investments in the country and in turn creating opportunities for employment, growth and revenue generation for the government,” said Akhil Saxena, Vice-President, India Customer Fulfilment at Amazon India.

Today, over 1.3 million products are available for immediate shipping through the network of Amazon’s FCs in India. This selection will increase with the company expanding its FC footprint.

At present, Amazon FCs are present in Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Delhi, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and West Bengal.
