Prakash Rochlani, Last Mile Transportation Director, Amazon India, said the initiative was in line with the company's vision of making e-commerce part of everyday life.

"This expansion will further create thousands of work opportunities for individuals in Tamil Nadu as we continue to remain committed to our long term investments", he told reporters.

The company also announced expansion of its delivery network in Namakkal, Tiruchengode, Sivakasi, Krishnagiri and Tiruvallur.
