Domestic eCommerce marketplace Flipkart on Tuesday announced the strengthening of its grocery supply chain infrastructure to provide its customers safe and seamless access to ordering daily essentials through quick and contactless doorstep delivery.

As part of the plan, Flipkart will add over 8 lakh square feet of space through five new fulfillment centers over the next three months.
