Flipkart will also develop its third data centre at the Chennai-based AdaniConnecX facility to strengthen its e-commerce business. The AdaniConnecX facility is a joint venture between EdgeConneX and Adani Enterprises Limited.

The fulfilment centre is expected to be operational in the third quarter of financial year 2022 and is expected to have the capacity to house 10 million units of sellers’ inventory.

A fulfillment centre is a third-party logistics warehouse where the company receives orders, processes them and finally, fulfills them.
