In between all those ecommerce ‘for sale’ stories, Indian government has granted Amazon approval to setup its logistics service in India (we earlier reported Amazon’s application to setup its courier service in India in the month odf December, 2011)
Amazon has taken a slow approach to build its India business and surprised everybody with the launch of Junglee, a price comparison service. While Amazon uses Junglee to understand the consumer behavior, they will be setting the logistics arm in tandem and do expect acquisitions in this space, as opposed to Amazon acquiring overyhyped ecommerce players.
And like we shared earlier, Mumbai could be the delivery hub for Amazon India operations (though Junglee team team is in Bangalore) and the company has been looking to hire delivery operations manager in Mumbai area.
Interesting times ahead for the Indian ecommerce industry.
What an interesting week, by the way?
