Srinagar: Amazon India has recently introduced their innovative ‘I Have Space’ program, which focuses on last- mile delivery. As part of this impactful initiative, the company is thrilled to announce the opening of its very first floating store on the iconic Dal Lake in Srinagar. Transforming a houseboat into a marvelous store, Amazon will now be able to provide daily deliveries to its esteemed customers residing in Srinagar.
In order to cater to the needs of the local community, Murtaza Khan Kashi, the proud owner of Select Town houseboat, has been appointed as the dedicated delivery partner. With utmost dedication and precision, Murtaza will ensure that packages reach the customers’ doorstep swiftly and conveniently, even amidst the picturesque surroundings of houseboat-laden Dal Lake.
Karuna Shankar Pande, the Director of Amazon Logistics India, expressed his excitement over this unprecedented venture. The floating store in Dal Lake will not only enhance the efficiency and promptness of deliveries across Srinagar but also provide countless opportunities for small-scale businesses. Furthermore, it solidifies Amazon’s already robust delivery network.
Since its inception in 2015, the ‘I Have Space’ program has successfully partnered with 28,000 local stores and Kirana (neighborhood) partners across 420 towns and cities in India. This endeavor has been instrumental in delivering products within a 2-4 kilometers radius, thereby empowering and supporting local businesses.
Through this revolutionary initiative, Amazon India aims to revolutionize the e-commerce industry, leaving a lasting impact on both customers and businesses alike. By blending modern convenience with traditional charm, the floating store on Dal Lake truly epitomizes Amazon’s commitment to providing professional, engaging, and informative services.
