Indian logistics and supply company Delhivery has plans to hire about 75,000 employees over the next one-and-a-half months. Out of the planned hires, 10,000 will be off-roll employees across Delhivery’s gateways, warehouses, and last-mile delivery. 

The company, in a statement, said about 50,000 hires would be last-mile agents through its Last-Mile Agent (LMA) programme. From self-employed individuals to retired professionals, any job seeker is eligible to sign up for the programme. The requirements are basic and may include possession of a two-wheeler, a driver’s license and a smartphone. 

Commenting on the announcement, Ajith Pai, COO, Delhivery, said, “Alongside building delivery capacity, we have expanded our infrastructural footprint by a million sq-ft in the first quarter of FY23.”

With a plan to roll out a revenue payout of Rs 150 crore across all programmes, the company’s fully-automated mega gateway at Tauru became operational in April this year.

The company aims to meet the expected higher volumes in terms of both parcels and express part-truck load business ahead of the festive season. It also plans to strengthen its D@S (Drop at Store) and Constellation programmes in order to extend its capacity. This will be done by adding 15,000-plus last-mile riders with onboarding truckers and brokers through its Business Partners (BP) programme. 

Currently working with over 29,000 customers, Delhivery has fulfilled over 1.6 billion shipments since inception.
