Amazon India launches its 5th specialized fulfilment centre in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: Amazon India on Thursday announced the expansion of its fulfilment network in Telangana with the launch of a new specialized fulfilment centre (FC) and the expansion of an existing one. Located in Hyderabad, the new FC will offer more than six lakh cubic feet of storage capacity and will benefit more than 35,000 sellers in the state.

This expansion marks an increase in Amazon India's infrastructure footprint in Telangana, which now will offer a floor area of close to one million square feet and storage capacity of more than five million cubic feet.

K.T Rama Rao, Telangana minister for industries and commerce, said Amazon India's significant investment in Telangana is a testament to the state's appeal as a business and innovation hub. "Investments like this will complement our ongoing efforts to build a stronger economic ecosystem and create diversified job opportunities for the local youth. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Amazon India; together, we are confident that this development will enable us to get more people back to work, and steer a path to a strong recovery after the pandemic," he said.

Abhinav Singh, the director of Amazon Transportation Services, Amazon India, said Hyderabad's proximity to cities and towns around the region makes it a strategic location for the company's infrastructure expansion. "The expanded infrastructure will help us meet our customers growing demand for large appliances and furniture while empowering small and medium businesses across the state," he said.

The expansion in Telangana is a part of Amazon India's plans to increase its national storage capability by close to 40% in 2021. Amazon India's operations presence in Telangana includes five fulfilment centres with more than five million cubic feet of storage space; two sort centres with more than 100,000 sq. ft. of processing area; a strong delivery network with close to 65 Amazon-owned and service partner delivery stations; and thousands of 'I Have Space' (IHS) stores in Telangana.
