Amazon launches all-women delivery station in Gujarat

Gujarat Global News Network, Ahmedabad
E-commerce major Amazon India has set up an all-women delivery station in Kadi of North Gujarat. The new all-women delivery station, operated by a delivery service partner, is part of the company’s efforts towards increasing participation of women in the workforce, a statement said.
“This first-of-its-kind station in Gujarat is completely managed and run by women across managerial and delivery associate roles. As of now, eight women have been hired for the facility. A helpline number has also been created for associates – who will deliver packages within a 2-5 km radius of the station – to dial in for any support or help needed during the day.
“Our vision is to enable women to discover meaningful career opportunities across the operations network at Amazon India. We have created more than 6,000 opportunities for women across our network where they continue to thrive and excel.
Amazon India said it has created opportunities for more than 200 women across its fulfilment network in the state. Recently, the company opened a delivery station, operated by a delivery service partner, in the state which is completely run and managed by transgender individuals.
