The company had earlier invested $10 Mn (INR 67 Cr) in the logistics platform, in September 2016.
As per documents filed with the Registrar of Companies (RoC), the logistics vertical has received the funding from Amazon Corporate Holdings Singapore and Amazon Malaysia.
Commenting on the development, an official spokesperson from Amazon told Inc42, “We strongly believe that customers, no matter where they reside, value three things the most – vast selection at low prices, fast & reliable delivery and a trusted online shopping experience. Our single-minded focus continues to be on working backwards from customers and innovating on their behalf towards this end. In line with our vision, we continue to invest in technology, logistics and infrastructure to ensure timely, reliable delivery and consistently drive customer value.”
Amazon Transportation Services was launched in March 2015 to capitalise upon the growing ecommerce market of India.
The company infused $17 Mn in its Indian wholesale arm to increase the transaction of smartphones via its B2B portal, in compliance with revised FDI norms in March 2016. In the same month, Amazon India increased its last mile delivery network. It now includes 12,500 local stores and retail outlets in 50 cities.
