Amazon India launched a programme under which it will take on board part-time partners to scale up its delivery operations across the country. Under the programme known as ‘Amazon Flex’, individuals can sign up, create their own schedule and earn Rs 120-140 per hour of delivering packages on behalf of Amazon. Amazon Flex has been launched in Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi and will be expanded to more cities later this year.
The programme, which works through an app, will create tens of thousands of part-time opportunities for individuals to further their earning potential by delivering Amazon packages during their spare time.
Amazon said every delivery partner goes through a comprehensive background verification process and hands-on training before they begin delivering packages. These participants will also be covered under a Group Accident policy while making deliveries for Amazon. While the brand continues to scale its existing delivery capabilities across the country, Amazon Flex will enable Amazon to continue growing its capacity to serve more customers and speed up deliveries.
