Amazon India has expanded their 4 hour delivery from 14 cities and towns last year to 50 recently. The facility applies to categories like consumer electronics, books, toys, media, kitchen, luxury, sports, video games, and personal care equipment, among others. Amazon India launched their same day delivery in India back in 2017. This facility will also be expanded to places in Surat, Mysuru, Mangalore, Bhopal, Nashik, Nellore, Anantapur, Warangal, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and Patna.
“We’re always innovating to bring our customers new levels of convenience and delivery options that work best for them; making Same-Day Delivery. We are especially excited to introduce this in cities and towns beyond metros, which are under served in terms of speed of delivery,”Abhinav Singh, director, Customer Fulfilment, Supply Chain & Amazon Transportation Services, Amazon India
According to Singh, such same day deliveries are great opportunities to delivery associates since the site locations are within the cities. Their same day delivery warehouses are located at prime locations in the cities so as to minimise the delivery times.
