Flipkart, India’s e-commerce marketplace, is to work with Adani Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone Limited, to strengthen supply chain infrastructure and further enhance its ability to serve its rapidly growing base of customers.
As part of this new partnership, Adani Logistics will construct a 534,000 sq. ft. fulfilment centre in its new logistics hub in Mumbai which will be leased to Flipkart. The centre is expected to be operational in 2022 and will have the capacity to house 10 million units of inventory at any point. There will also be cooperation between Adani and Flipkart on new cloud-based data management systems.
Karan Adani, Chief Executive Officer of Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ), said, “This broad-ranging partnership across our logistics and data centre businesses is a unique business model, and we see this as a great opportunity to serve Flipkart’s physical as well as digital infrastructure needs.”
