Amazon India to set up largest warehouse in Hyderabad

Announcing the largest investment in India so far, online retail giant Amazon on Wednesday said it would open a Fulfilment Centre (FC), its largest warehouse in the country, near Hyderabad. 

Coming up near Kottur, on the outskirts of Hyderabad, the FC will be spread over 280,000 square feet and will be operational from May this year. 

This is the largest investment in infrastructure in any state in India by Amazon. However, the quantum of investment has not been revealed. 

The announcement was made after a delegation of officials from Amazon Seller Services met Telangana's information technology minister KT Rama Rao. 

The company also inked a Memorandum of Understanding with the state government. 

With the opening of the new FC in Telangana, Amazon will have 11 FCs operational across nine states in India, covering a total of over one million square feet space with a storage capacity of over 2.5 million cubic feet.
