The Amazon facility comprises a Receiving Centre, Sorting Centre, Fulfillment Centre and Amazon Retail in a single location, enabling the global technology company to enhance operational efficiencies and service the growing demand in this region.
Amazon has committed to the entire 1 million square feet facility at the LOGOS Devanahalli Industrial and Logistics Park.

This a testament to LOGOS’ development expertise and our partnership approach with both our customers and contractors as we work closely with them to understand their needs. For LOGOS, the timeframe was key in ensuring readiness for the festive season and the rebound in economic activity.”
