Prime Day: Amazon to launch 2-hour delivery service on July 16, prepares for huge volume of orders

Over 100 million Prime members in 17 countries, including India, will participate in Prime Day

Amazon India has the largest warehousing capacity in India among all its peers, with 67 fulfilment centres across 13 states in the country. Now, two-hour deliveries are next for the e-commerce giant.

Amazon has now come up with a new wing to fulfil even more advanced logistics requirements of its customers. These are small-format warehouses within a city for two-hour express deliveries. Amazon has 17,500 such stores, called ‘I Have Space’ stores, in 225 cities and 350 service partners in 320 cities, Business Standard reported.

This may come in handy as Amazon is readying to celebrate a 36-hour-long global sale for Prime members only on, starting July 16.

In a global flagship event created by Amazon, over 100 million Prime members in 17 countries, including India, will participate in Prime Day. Netherlands, Luxembourg, Australia and Singapore have also made it to the list this year.

Experts suggest that Amazon may occupy more than 30 million square feet of real estate in the country by the end of this year. Flipkart, one of Amazon’s major rivals, has 41 warehouses. Amazon leases and buys real estate in India, as part of a mixed model of property ownership. It will soon leave behind software companies in India in this respect.
