Supply chain services provider Delhivery has announced its massive hiring plan ahead of the festive season. According to the latest update, Delhivery will create over 75,000 seasonal jobs pan-India, over the next six weeks. The seasonal workforce will cater to the increased volumes during the festive season with both its parcel and express part-truckload businesses.
Of the total, Delhivery will hire more than 10,000 off-roll employees across its gateways, warehouses, and last-mile delivery centers. The company will also double down on its various partner programs by onboarding individual bikers, local retailers, business partners, and transporters.
Among others, the company will hire 50,000 last-mile agents through the Last-Mile Agent program. The job roles will be open to all. Self-employed individuals, students, retired professionals, and other job seekers looking for flexible earning opportunities can sign up and offer delivery services in their area. All they require is a two-wheeler, a valid driving license, and a smartphone.
Besides hiring, Delhivery will also strengthen its other ongoing programs, such as Drop at Store and Constellation, to extend its capacity by adding over 15,000 last-mile riders. Drop at Store and constellation enable local retailers, small businesses, and entrepreneurs to provide pick-up and delivery services in their local area. Further, the company will onboard truckers, fleet owners, and brokers through its Business Partners programme to expand part-truckload capacity by 50% over the next few weeks.
