Betting big on the e-commerce growth and prospects in Haryana, United States (US)-based Walmart backed Flipkart has set up four more fulfilment centres in the state ahead of the festive season, reports Economic Times.
Fulfilment centres are specialised facilities where products are received from sellers across the region, processed and packed, and then sent to sortation centres and delivery hubs for delivery to customers.
The four warehouses have come up in Sankpa, Yakubpur, Kulana and Rewari with a total area of over 12 lakh square feet and a storage capacity of over 30 lakh cubic feet. These will help create 12,000 direct and indirect job opportunities in the state.
The new warehouses will cater to sellers of large appliances, furniture, mobiles, apparel and electronics, and as per a company statement, more than 13,000 sellers from the state will now get augmented support to reach new customers nationally.
