E-commerce giant Flipkart sunday announced the opening of a fulfilment centre in Luhari, close to Gurgaon, to meet the growing needs for consumer electronics and durables in the northern region.
With this new facility, Flipkart now has a total of 17 warehouses covering 1.5 million square feet of storage capacity across the country, the company said in a release. It said this warehouse has been primarily set up to stock consumer electronics and durables like TVs, washing machines, refrigerators, ACs and microwave ovens.
Stating that the new facility has a total storage capacity of close to five lakh cubic feet spread over one lakh square feet, Flipkart said the service would facilitate quicker deliveries of consumer electronics and durables to the northern parts of the country -- Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh.
With this warehouse, Flipkart strengthens the large appliances supply chain in northern states of the country massively, it added. "With Flipkart Big Billion Days just around the corner, the new warehouse will help us improve the productivity and meet the anticipated demand during this period," Flipkart Chief Operating Officer & Co-founder Binny Bansal said.
Owing to a rise in customer demand, we are investing hugely in strengthening the supply chain areas, improving processes and ensuring quality assurance, he added.
