Amazon Flex provides part-time and flexible earning opportunities to individuals
Bangalore, 18 June 2020: Amazon India today announced the expansion of the Amazon Flex delivery program to more than 35 cities in the country. The global delivery program, launched in June 2019 in India aims at creating part time work opportunities where individuals can be their own boss, create their own schedule and earn INR 120 to 140 per hour by delivering packages to Amazon customers. The expansion of the program from 3 cities in June 2019 to 35 cities in June 2020 has created tens of thousands of part-time opportunities for individuals in metros and non-metro cities such as Raipur, Hubli, Gwalior and Nashik among others.
The expansion of the program will help scale Amazon India’s delivery capability at a time when customers across the country continue to depend on Amazon India’s services to have their products delivered safely at their doorstep.
“Over the last one year we have received an overwhelming response for the Amazon Flex program from thousands of individuals who have benefited by delivering to Amazon customers. Amazon Flex partners enjoy the part time opportunity to earn more, especially at this time when the country is economically recovering from the impact of the nationwide lockdown. Their safety remains our top priority, and we are taking the right precautions, and have implemented a series of preventative health measures. As we continue to scale and further grow the program to more than 35 cities across the country, Amazon Flex will add tremendous value in serving our customers so they can stay home and practice social distancing.” said Prakash Rochlani, Director, Last Mile Transportation, Amazon India.
Since its launch in June 2019, the program has created opportunities for students, homemakers and individuals who are looking to supplement their income by delivering Amazon packages during their spare time. Interested delivery partners can sign up, choose their own schedule, and deliver packages – all using the Amazon Flex app. Interested individuals can visit https://flex.amazon.in for more details.
