September 16, 2021: Ecom Express announced the launch of its delivery partner programme called Ecom Sanjeev Program (ESP) aimed at creating part-time work opportunities where individuals can work at flexible timings to maximize their earnings by delivering e-commerce packages to customers.
“This program besides empowering gig workforce will help to scale the company’s delivery capabilities in assuring speed, reliable and effective logistics solutions to deliver online-ordered products safely at customers’ doorstep. Ecom Express is looking at engaging 16000 + gig workforce as independent delivery partners to handle the upcoming e-commerce festive season shipment load in key cities and districts across the country,” reads the release.
Any individual – fresher or experienced - can take up this part-time job for additional income by applying online using Ecom Sanjeev app available on Google Playstore. They will have the flexibility to choose their preferred time slots and workdays. The delivery partner must possess a valid driving license with a vehicle and must have a smartphone. All personal documents for enrollment can be uploaded through the app and the verification will be done at the nearest Ecom Express centre.
Saurabh Deep Singla, EVP and CHRO, Ecom Express, said, “The pandemic has pushed more traditional workers towards the gig working culture, especially in the current times when the country is trying to revive its economy. As we launch the program across the country, it will add tremendous value in not only helping communities wade through the crisis and provide them with opportunities to earn but also enable the company to perform seamless end-to-end last-mile distribution. With increasing cases in the state, e-commerce has taken precedence to contain the virus spread. For every Ecom delivery partner on the street, more than 50 people are safe in their homes!”
Since its pilot run last year, the program has created opportunities for 15000+ students, homemakers and individuals looking to supplement and maximize their income by delivering e-commerce packages during their spare time. Interested delivery partners can sign up, choose their own schedule, and deliver packages – all using the Ecom Sanjeev app.
