E-commerce major Snapdeal has set up six mega logistics hubs across Delhi-NCR and other cities to strengthen its warehousing and delivery operations ahead of the festive season.
The new centres, 3 in Delhi-NCR and one each in Lucknow, Hyderabad and Kolkata, will allow Snapdeal to deliver products faster as it competes head-on against rivals like Flipkart and Amazon. Snapdeal did not disclose investment details. With a total of 1 million sq ft warehousing space, these centres are designed as integrated facilities that combine warehousing, quality control and transportation to aid sellers, Snapdeal said in a statement. All processes — from receipt of stocks, quality inspection, preparation for dispatch and return handling — would be available to sellers under one roof. This will reduce costs for sellers and offer them better visibility and control of their stocks.
