    Flipkart, a top e-commerce company in India, has opened a new fulfillment center in Sangareddy, Telangana. The facility covers 4 lakh square feet and will help deliver a range of products, including furniture and large appliances, from local sellers and MSMEs to a national market. The launch of the new center is part of Flipkart’s effort to strengthen its supply chain infrastructure and support India’s digital commerce evolution. The company’s operations have already created over 40,000 jobs in Telangana, and more than 14,000 local sellers have joined its e-commerce platform.

    Telangana’s Minister for Municipal Administration & Urban Development, Industries & Commerce, and Information Technology, Shri.
