Amazon India on Wednesday announced the launch of an all-women partner delivery station in Andhra Pradesh. Located at Piduguralla town of Guntur district, the new station will be operated by Amazon’s Delivery Service Partner (DSP). The e-commerce giant currently has four all-women delivery stations that are situated in cities including Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, and Kerala.
The launch is part of Amazon India’s sustained efforts to increase the opportunities for women in the logistics sector while strengthening its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity (DEI) commitment.
Karuna Shankar Pande, Director, Last Mile Operations, Amazon India, said, “I’m proud to announce the launch of the fifth all-women delivery station in the country, and the first in the state of Andhra Pradesh. This continued expansion is a testament of providing women with growth opportunities that enable them to expand their horizons.”
“Our Delivery Service Partners across the country play an important role in strengthening Amazon India’s operations network, and in delivering smiles to our customers. We stay committed to providing women with safe and fulfilling opportunities, and remain steadfast in our resolve to financially uplift them,” he added.
The DSP program is a last-mile delivery model where Amazon India partners with Small and Mid-sized businesses (SMBs) to deliver packages to Amazon customers. For many partners, this program is their first entrepreneurial venture. They leverage their local knowledge of the community and the technological support offered by Amazon India to seamlessly fulfil delivery promises to customers.
