    BENGALURU: Amazon is looking to build large delivery hubs in Bengaluru and Hyderabad for its Amazon Fresh two-hour grocery and fresh produce retailing service, a person aware of the development said, as the company increases its bet on daily essentials ordered online.

    Plans for two hubs have been approved at Amazon in the backdrop of chief executive Jeff Bezos’ visit to India. The new hubs will consolidate small grocery delivery hubs it uses.

    “The plan has been approved and designs shared. Work starts now,” the person told ET, on the condition of anonymity. “The smaller hubs were not working out and a decision was made to consolidate Amazon Fresh deliveries from a single location in order to scale the business.”

    “We have 15 Amazon Fresh nodes across four cities in India. We do not comment on what we may or may not do in the future,” an Amazon spokesperson said in response to ET’s emailed questionnaire.

    Hyderabad is very humid and nearly 9 months in an year is the rain. More over unplanned city with traffic of commuters this is going to be a very costly exercise for Amazon Fresh. They should check with Reliance Fresh they are in loss.
