US-headquartered ecommerce giant Amazon is now enabling customer pickups in Mumbai. The company has partnered with Indian Railways to set up pickup kiosks in four railway stations across Mumbai. The initiative will be launched as a pilot in CSTM, Thane, Dadar and Kalyan.
The company said that kiosks have been placed in high foot traffic locations inside the station that provide easy accessibility and better convenience to Amazon customers who want to pick up their packages on their way in or out. Customers can select these points as a pick-up location on the checkout page of their order while shopping on Amazon.in.
The new initiative from Amazon is likely to boost the company’s business in the city. The e-commerce giant has been in a neck-to-neck race with Walmart-owned Flipkart. So, the new kiosks may may also give an edge to Amazon over Flipkart.
