Indian e-commerce firm Flipkart is planning to set up an integrated logistics park on the outskirts of Bengaluru. This will be the largest and of-its-kind facility in the country. The facility, for which the company is in the process of acquiring 100 acres of land, will house multiple massive warehouses that will rival in size those set up by Amazon and Alibaba in the US and China.
The park, location of which will be finalised in the next few months, will have 1.5 million square feet of warehousing space by the middle of next year.
In comparison, the largest e-commerce warehouse in the country today is run by US online retail giant Amazon in Telangana, which spans 400,000 square feet.
I have used Flipkart for many years – my early transactions were for books which could not be found elsewhere. Always found Flipkart to be efficient and I would recommend them to you.
Of course, Amazon is a growing player in the Indian market but you can see that this home grown e-commerce firm is competing hard and is set to succeed.
