Amazon announced in August that it has signed a lease with GMR Hyderabad Airport City to expand its largest Fulfilment Centre (FC) in India. The existing FC here is spread across 400,000 square feet and will now be expanded by another 180,000 square feet, a company statement said. With this investment, Amazon has more than three fulfilment centres in Telangana with a total processing area of more than 850,000 square feet.

“In line with our vision to transform the way India buys and sells, we have been consistently investing in our infrastructure and delivery network, so we can increase our speed of delivery and provide a superior experience to both - customers and sellers,” Amazon’s Vice President, Customer Fulfilment-Asia, Akhil Saxena said.

“With the further expansion of our largest fulfilment centre in India, we are excited to create many more hundreds of skilled jobs in the region and empower thousands of local sellers to use the local infrastructure thus helping them save capital and grow,” he said.
