South Punjab’s first Amazon Fulfillment and Facilitation Center (AFFC) would be inaugurated in Multan after Eid-ul-Azha to introduce and market a variety of products worldwide with made-in-Pakistan signature.
Post Master General (PMG) Zulfiqar Husnain told APP on Thursday that the government has made untiring efforts to get Pakistani products access to Amazon, and Pakistan Post was working industriously to achieve the target.
The PMG said that most of the work has been completed on the AFFC at the general post office Dera Adda and it would become functional after Eid-ul-Azha.
An Amazon warehouse would also be established there to come up to the expectations of Amazon. The work was also in progress to set up Amazon centres with warehouses in Bahawalpur and other districts of South Punjab.
“Multan officials were in contact with Multan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) to ensure that handmade products of South Punjab become an identity of Pakistan on Amazon portal and ensure that local exporters, industrialists and traders also avail the world’s largest online retail platform after registration.”
He said Amazon was the world’s biggest market portal, and a made-in-Pakistan signature would be a significant success for the government.
The initiative would not only bring much needed foreign exchange earnings, but would also improve Pakistan Post revenue, the PMG said.
