Amazon launches an innovative opportunity for part time delivery partners in India
Amazon India announced the launch of Amazon Flex, an innovative opportunity for individuals to be their own boss, create their own schedule and earn INR 120 to 140 per hour delivering packages on behalf of Amazon. The program 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.
Meet 19-year-old student Anand Rao Bohite, who says he enrolled for this program because of his love for cricket. "I play cricket at the district level and need some extra money so I can pay for the coaching. The Flex programme gives me this extra money. I earn at least INR 2400 per week and the flexibility allows me to pursue my passion." If Anand could pursue his passion of cricket with Amazon Flex, for 28-year-old Praveen Uikey the extra income helps him nurture his dreams of acting. "I like to do plays and this extra money will only help me invest in a better wardrobe for my plays. Also with this money I can now watch good dramas and get inspired."
Amazon Flex works in concert with the advanced logistics systems and technology that Amazon has been building. Interested delivery partners with two-wheelers can sign up, choose their own schedule, and deliver packages – all using the Amazon Flex app. Every delivery partner goes through a comprehensive background verification process and hands on training before they begin delivering packages. All Amazon Flex participants are also covered under a Group Accident policy while making deliveries for Amazon. Interested individuals can visit https://flex.amazon.in for more details.
Amazon Flex was first launched in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi in June 2019. Owing to the success and positive response, the program has scaled to seven cities in just a span of 3 months.
“We are proud to create opportunities for tens of thousands of individuals to further their earning potential with a flexible work option to be their own boss, create their own schedule and take advantage of Amazon technology to deliver packages,” explained Akhil Saxena Vice President – Asia Customer Fulfilment, Amazon. “While we continue to scale our existing delivery capabilities across the country, Amazon Flex will enable Amazon to continue growing our capacity to serve more customers and speed up deliveries.“
