“With the further expansion of our largest fulfilment centre, we empower thousands of local sellers to use the local infrastructure,” Akhil Saxena, Vice-President, Customer Fulfilment (Asia) of Amazon, has said.

“With new infrastructure, we are able to impact local communities through full time and part-time job creation and skilling across the state and the country,” the e-commerce company said in a release.
