Amazon launches all-Women Delivery Station in Gujarat

Amazon India has launched all-women delivery station in Gujarat's Kadi town to strengthen its commitment towards increasing participation of women in the workforce. 


This is Amazon India’s second all-women delivery station in India. Earlier, the company had launched the first all-women delivery station with its delivery service partner in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.


The Delivery Service Partner program is a last-mile delivery model of Amazon India, where the company partners with entrepreneurs. For many partners, this program is their first entrepreneurial venture.


This first-of-its-kind station in Gujarat is managed and operated by an all-women team working across managerial and delivery associate roles.


Prakash Rochlani, Director, Last Mile Operations, Amazon India, said “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. The launch of the first all-women delivery station in Gujarat is a testament to our commitment to providing women with safe and fulfilling opportunities and we look forward to help more women across communities attain financial independence in life.”


Meanwhile, Jayshreeben Patel, a woman associate in the all women delivery station, said, “I feel grateful for the opportunity that Amazon India has provided me. There aren’t many women delivery associates in my locality, and I feel proud that I can step out every day and deliver smiles to the customers in my community. I am glad that I can financially support my family now. My husband says that I am inspiration to my daughters.”
