Tuesday 10 September 2019 10:59 CET | News

Flipkart has onboarded around 27,000 kirana shops across 700 cities in India to strengthen its pan-Indian supply chain.

The process is expected to strengthen and personalise the ecommerce experience for its existing 160 million customers, help deepen its reach to new geographies and consumers, and support kiranas. Also, it will help reach out to new consumers during the upcoming festive event, The Big Billion Days.

Currently, Flipkart delivers over one million shipments everyday across almost all pincodes in the country.

Moreover, in August 2019, Flipkart signed an agreement with Logistics Sector Skill Council (LSC) of National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to train 20,000 of its delivery executives or Wishmasters across the country.
