Flipkart’s 10th  Big Billion Days to strengthen supply chain

Flipkart is gearing up to mark the 10th edition of its annual flagship event, The Big Billion Days (TBBD). Ahead of the festive season, Flipkart will generate over 1,00,000 new job opportunities across its supply chain, including fulfillment centers, sortation centers, and delivery hubs. These seasonal jobs include local kirana delivery partners, women, persons with disabilities (PWDs), and others, thus creating avenues for diverse supply chain talent. 

This year, Flipkart has scaled its supply chain with last-mile distribution hubs and large-scale fulfillment centers, strengthening its reach in tier-III cities and beyond. It has added more than 19 lakh square feet of space across Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Bihar, Punjab, Rajasthan, Telangana, and many more states.

To provide a delightful end-customer experience, Flipkart undertakes specially curated skilling initiatives through its training programs for the workforce that joins the supply chain, which also helps significantly boost local employment and the economy. All hired personnel undergo training in the supply chain process for their respective function and are trained to handle necessary equipment.

The festive season and the Big Billion Days serve as key drivers for incremental growth of the entire ecosystem, including kirana delivery partners, sellers, MSMEs, artisans/weavers, warehouse personnel, and more, who stand at the forefront of this momentum. It enables them to capitalise on the increased shipment deliveries nationwide, significantly elevate their income, and prosper within the supply chain framework. Flipkart is poised to celebrate the 10th edition of its annual flagship event with an impactful presence that resonates across the e-commerce landscape and reverberates through the lives of numerous individuals.
