After setting the world record for selling the maximum number of mobile phones in one day. Xiaomi seems to be making an aggressive push in the Indian market as well.
The Chinese smartphone vendor is now setting up a warehouse n Bommasandra which is an industrial hub within the city of Bangalore.
The OEM plans to use this warehouse to accelerate the process of deliveries made to its customers when the orders are placed through their online site or any other online portal vending Xiaomi products.
Till date Flipkarty used to handle the import, warehousing and distribution for Xiaomi. However, recently Xiaomi started selling accessories on its own site. Earlier this week, Xiaomi ended its exclusive partnership with Flipkart and started selling its products on Amazon and Snapdeal as well.
This clearly suggests that Xiaomi is trying to boost its online and offline presence in the Indian market. As they finally realize that only online retail with an exclusive website won't fetch them the stats they are aiming for.
