Logistics service provider Delhivery on Friday (26 August) announced its plans to hire over 75,000 employees for seasonal jobs ahead of the festive season.

The company is also expanding its pan-India parcel sortation capacity by 1.5 million shipments a day to meet the heightened customer demands.

"Delhivery, India's largest and fastest-growing, fully-integrated logistics provider, has announced plans to create over 75,000 seasonal jobs pan-India, over the next 6 weeks," the company said in a regulatory filing.

"This will cater to the significantly higher volumes during the festive season with both its parcel and express part-truckload businesses," it added.

Of the total, Delhivery will hire 10,000+ off-roll employees across its gateways, warehouses, and last-mile delivery centres.

The company said it will also double down on its various partner programs by onboarding individual bikers, local retailers, business partners, and transporters.

The company is expected to roll out a revenue payout of 150 crore across all programmes.

Commenting on the plans, Ajith Pai, Chief Operating Officer, Delhivery, said, "Alongside building delivery capacity, we have expanded our infrastructural footprint by a million sqft in the first quarter of FY23".

"Our fully-automated mega gateway at Tauru went live in April this year and is equipped with the automated parcel and hub sortation to drive efficiency across both b2c and b2b supply chains," Pai said.

"Additionally, we are beefing up our pan-India parcel sortation capacity by 1.5M shipments a day to meet the heightened customer demands," he added.

The company said that it will hire 50,000 last-mile agents through the LMA(Last-Mile Agent) programme alone.

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, the company said.

"All they require is a two-wheeler, a valid driving license, and a smartphone," it added.

Delhivery will also strengthen its other ongoing programmes, such as D@S(Drop at Store) and Constellation, to extend its capacity by adding over 15,000 last-mile riders.

D@S 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 BP program (Business Partners) to expand part-truckload capacity by 50 per cent over the next few weeks, it said.
