These new small business owners are supported by Amazon to deliver the packages safely and successfully. With this offering, new entrepreneurs can start their business with low startup costs and require low working capital that will help them operate their business seamlessly.

Amazon India has already on-boarded the first batch of more than 40 new DSPs through the programme and will open up more opportunities for entrepreneurs in the future. This new evolution of the DSP programme has also been 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.

“With the programme’s growth, we have innovated to enhance the experience for our 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,” said Akhil Saxena, VP, Customer Fulfilment, APAC, MENA and LATAM, Amazon.

Since Amazon launched its DSP programme, it has invested over $1 billion 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.

Since the DSP programme first launched in India, it has not only helped Amazon provide growth avenues to small and medium businesses but also enabled it to reach into India’s hinterlands. The programme has more than 300 entrepreneurs in India, managing 1,500 delivery service partner stations across 750 cities and towns creating jobs for locals. With the launch of this offering, Amazon India will further strengthen its last mile network and reach.
