On Monday, Amazon India said that will use 55 railway routes to transport goods between cities to ensure faster deliveries to customers amid the nationwide coronavirus lockdown.

Partnering once again with the Indian Railways, the e-commerce company would now be utilising 55 railway lanes. Similarly last year, Amazon India had partnered with Indian Railways for inter-city transportation of e-commerce packages on 13 lanes. It had also set up pickup centers for customers in Kolkata and Mumbai, as reported by The Economic Times. 

According to a statement, Amazon India will transport consignments via rail across the country and is leveraging the ‘COVID-19 Parcel Special Trains’ introduced by the Indian Railways to ramp up its operations to 55 lanes during the lockdown period.
