Amazon India announced the launch of a new Delivery Station in Bengaluru, Karnataka. Spread across close to 30,000 square feet, the new station will enable Amazon to strengthen its last-mile delivery network and ensure faster deliveries across the city of Bengaluru, ahead of the upcoming festive season. This is Amazon’s largest delivery station in the state out of the exiting network of 130 Amazon owned and partner delivery stations. Investments in Delivery Stations enable seamless and faster last mile deliveries of orders to customers in the region, and create local jobs in the city.
Commenting on the expansion, Prakash Rochlani, Director, Amazon Logistics said, “We believe customers, no matter where they are located, value fast & reliable delivery. In line with our vision of making e-commerce a part of everyday life, and transforming how India buys and sells we have expanded our last mile delivery network in the State and also opened a new large delivery station spread across 30,000 square feet of space in Bengaluru. This expansion will create hundreds of work opportunities for individuals in the city as we continue our long-term investment in infrastructure and technology in the State.”
In addition to the launch of the delivery station in Bangalore, the company has invested in the overall growth of the delivery network in the state to enable Amazon to penetrate further into smaller towns across Karnataka like Athani, Kemvavi, Rathihalli and Kinnigoli to name a few. The company also has a strong delivery presence in more than 950 pin codes of the State, with a significant number of customers now being able to enjoy one-day and two-delivery promises. With this expansion, Amazon India now has more than 130 delivery stations including those operated by its Partners and more than 2600 ‘I Have Space’ partners across the state.
Amazon India has continued to invest in infrastructure in the state of Karnataka. With the launch of its largest Fulfillment Center in Bangalore earlier this week, the company has a total of 5 fulfilment Centers spread across 6.5 million cubic feet to support over 42,000 sellers and sort centers with sortation area of more than 300,000 sq. ft.
