Amazon is expanding its distribution network in India in order to help people with limited Internet access.
According to the Times of India, the online retail giant will use neighborhood stores and small traders in the state of Rajasthan to create thousands of points of sale, at which customers can come to place and collect orders.
The system, called Udaan, has already been tried at some shops in the states of Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, the Times says.
“We wanted to systematically understand how to connect Amazon skill development, hungry entrepreneurs and underserved customers in a seamless manner,” Amit Agarwal, Amazon India’s vice president and country manager, told the Times.
