Amazon India has launched an opportunity for individuals work part-time, creating their own schedule and earn Rs 120 to 140 per hour delivering packages on behalf of Amazon. Called Amazon Flex, the program, Amazon says, works through an app and will create tens of thousands of part time opportunities for individuals to further their earning potential by delivering Amazon packages during their spare time.
Amazon Flex has launched in Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi and will expand to additional cities this year.
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.
Those wanting to sign for this can currently choose the day and time – a maximum of 4 hours a day. In a week, a delivery partner can deliver for approximately 25-30 hours under flex.
“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,” he added.
The program, which was first launched in 2015, is currently live in six countries including North America, Spain, Japan, Singapore, Germany and the United Kingdom.
