Kolkata: Mahindra Logistics Ltd will commence operations of a 1.1 lakh sq. ft. fulfillment centre in West Bengal's Malda dedicated to handling fulfillment and last-mile deliveries, the company said on Thursday.

"This centre is a critical part of Mahindra Logistics’ supply chain network and will execute efficient and timely deliveries through end-to-end fulfillment and distribution capabilities," Mahindra Logistics said in a press release.

The establishment will generate over 750 job opportunities, including the 350 dedicated personnel for the last-mile network.
