​Amazon Launched Next Evolution of Its Delivery Service Partner Program in India

News Desk, News Nation 360 : Amazon is launching the next evolution of its Delivery Service Partner (DSP) program in India that enables aspiring entrepreneurs, even with little to no delivery experience, to develop and launch their own delivery businesses. These new small business owners are supported by the backing of Amazon’s more than 20 years of operational experience, best-in-class technology, and a suite of exclusively negotiated services and assets required to deliver Amazon packages safely and successfully. With this offering, new entrepreneurs can start their business with low start-up costs and require low working capital that will help them operate their business seamlessly. The biggest challenge in developing a delivery network is building great teams who understand their communities, and small business owners do that best. They hire and develop great associates, while the DSP program supports them with consistent volume, logistics experience, technology, and custom resources that help their businesses thrive. Since Amazon launched its DSP program, it has invested over $1B in technology globally, with new exclusive tools for DSPs. Because of this investment, 2,500 small logistics companies are thriving and have created more than tens of thousands of jobs for Delivery Associates around the world. Amazon India has already onboarded the first batch of more than 40 new DSPs through the program and will open up more opportunities for entrepreneurs in the future. This new evolution of the DSP program has also launched in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Brazil, Netherlands, and now India, enabling these small businesses to create thousands of job opportunities. Since the DSP program first launched in India, it has not only helped Amazon provide growth avenues to SMBs but also enabled it to reach into India’s hinterlands. The program has more than 300 entrepreneurs in India, managing 1,500 Delivery Service Partner Stations across 750 cities and towns creating jobs for tens of thousands of locals. With the launch of this offering, Amazon India will further strengthen its last-mile network and reach. Akhil Saxena, VP – Customer Fulfilment, APAC, MENA and LATAM, Amazon said that they’re incredibly proud of the hundreds of small business owners growing and benefiting from the Delivery Service Partner program. With the program’s growth, they have innovated to enhance the experience for their DSPs and their associates. The new offering will serve as an incubator and enable rapid growth opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs in the logistics sector, who will in turn be able to create additional job opportunities and a great working environment for their associates while building a strong foundation for their own entrepreneurial journey.
