India Is The Seventh Country To Launch Amazon Flex
The program which was under pilot testing for over the last two weeks is officially launched today across Bengaluru, Delhi, and Mumbai, with a plan to expand to more cities later this year. This program is also operational in Amazon’s six other markets in North America, Spain, Japan, Germany, Singapore, and the UK.
Even though Amazon was launched in India six years ago, the delivery program was introduced only due to the the specific requirements from the Indian market.
Such as in India, a delivery is marked complete when the customer receives the package rather than being left at the doorstep as is the case in the western market and in retails, particularly during peak season the numbers of delivers become quite high which can stress the current network of e-tailors.
Amazon wants to minimize the competition such as malls and shops by trying to fasten the delivery process in order to reduce the desire of customers to check out alternatives. Since 2013, Amazon has invested around $5 billion in India mostly on infrastructure, technology, and innovation.
