E-commerce company Amazon India is expanding its delivery network ahead of the upcoming festive season. For this, the company has set up additional delivery stations and is also adding grocery stores to its platform. The company said that its move will also help in generating employment. Also, faster delivery will help during the festive season.
In order to meet the increasing demand of customers during the festive season, the company has added more than 10,000 delivery partners to the network, strengthening its delivery infrastructure. The company has also added about 200 delivery stations operated by delivery service partners across the country, including delivery stations in several remote northeastern cities such as Champhai, Kolasib, Lumding and Mokokchung to expand its direct reach. Amazon India has around 250 delivery stations operating through more than 250 delivery service operators across the country. They are operated by more than 280 entrepreneurs across the country.
I have also strengthened the space
The company has also strengthened its delivery programs as well as the flagship program ‘I Have Space’ (IHS). So far, more than 28,000 shops and grocery stores in 350 cities have been covered. Under ‘I Have Space’ program, Amazon India partners with local store owners to deliver products to customers within a range of 2 to 4 kilometers. With this they can increase regular income and make the store better.
‘Amazon Flex’ doubled
Apart from this, the company has almost doubled the reach of ‘Amazon Flex’ program in the last four months, which now serves 65 cities in India. The company said in a statement that the credit for the growth of this program goes to the flexibility given to the delivery partner so that they can work according to their schedule. Also, you can earn extra from 120 to 140 rupees per hour by delivery of Amazon package.
Focusing more on contactless delivery, Amazon India has also created ‘society pickup points’. It is a delivery format that caters to the needs of people in the highly populated residential societies in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The program offers both virtual pickup points and physical locations within the housing complexes – customers can choose any option during checkout. Delivery is done on special days of the week for the convenience of customers.
So that customers get the desired things at home
Prakash Rochlani, director of Last Mile Operations at Amazon India, said, “The recent expansion of our delivery programs has provided a collective experience to advance Amazon India’s goals and work faster, safely and seamlessly before the festive season.
“Our goal is to ensure customers across the country that in this festive season our customers can get their favorite things from home comfortably. We value the safety of both our customers and delivery partners. We have worked hard to build our delivery network, so that safe, contactless delivery can happen from all parts of the country. ”
