Amazon will expand its largest Fulfilment Centre (FC) in Telangana, India, by signing a lease with GMR Hyderabad Airport City.
The existing FC in the state is spread across 400,000 square feet. This will now be expanded by another 180,000 square feet.
With this expansion, Amazon will have over three fulfilment centres in Telangana with a total processing area of more than 850,000 square feet.
Akhil Saxena, Vice President, Customer Fulfilment-Asia, Amazon, said, "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."
"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 added.
Aman Kapoor, CEO of GMR Airport Land Development, stated, "We hope Amazon continues to grow and thrive at Hyderabad Airport City. This agreement firmly establishes us as one of the most reliable Grade-A warehouse developers."
