According to the report,the Vice President of Amazon India said that, the exponential growth of online shopping in India has been huge and keeping that in mind the company is  glad to announce six new FCs in India.

An FC enables a small seller or an SME to reach out to prospective customers on a massive scale by utilising the well-established infrastructure  like Amazon. Sellers can send their products to Amazon’s FC, from where Amazon will pick the  packs and ship the product to the customer who placed the order.

Amazon will have operational FCs with a storage area close to 2.5 million square feet in addition to the new FCs.
