E-commerce giant Flipkart on 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 500,000 cubic feet spread over 100,000 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.
