It is the International Women’s day on 8th March this year, and what can be a better occasion than this for Amazon to embrace the hard-working women of our country.
Aimed at empowering women and transforming their lives, India’s leading online marketplace Amazon India has announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind ‘women only’ delivery station starting from Trivandrum.
Subsequent hubs will be opened in Chennai and Kochi. As the name also suggests, the delivery stations will be managed and run by women completely, through their service partners of course.
Women at both these stations will deliver packages on two-wheelers, covering a radius of 2-3 kms from the delivery station.
Through this initiative, Amazon has taken the lead to engage with women, create unique relevant job opportunities and enable them to be achievers in this field.
These dedicated Amazon India women delivery stations will through their service partners be completely managed and run by women.
Samuel Thomas, transportation director, Amazon India, said their vision is to create opportunities for individuals to realize their potential and transform their lives.
“We are proud to have pioneered the women only delivery station which is a first of its kind India specific innovation from Amazon and look forward to help women across communities attain financial independence in life,” said Thomas.
