Amazon delivers customer orders in Himalayas

Amazon delivers customer orders in Himalayas

Situated in the upper Himalayas, nested at 4500 feet above sea level, Maharishi Ashram in Gajoli is a serene haven for close to 60 meditation practitioners in India. It’s an ashram where people come from around the world to practice meditation and find inner peace. This journey is not only difficult but also time-consuming, as there are no shops or delivery options in and around the Ashram area. Things changed in 2020, when became the first and only e-commerce company to deliver to Maharishi Ashram in Gajoli village. 

Amazon launched its operations in the region with a Delivery Service Partner station in March 2019, catering to the population in and around Uttarkashi. Identifying a specific need for the Maharishi Ashram in Gajoli, the station started delivering to the ashram in early 2020. 

“In our relentless pursuit of customer obsession, we have built a strong operations network in India,” said Dr. Karuna Shankar Pande, Director, Amazon Logistics, Amazon India. “ The challenging terrain and extreme climate of Uttarkashi have traditionally posed obstacles to transportation.

Speaking of his journey with Amazon as a Delivery Service Partner, Rahul Kesar said, “It has been a fulfilling experience as Amazon’s delivery service partner. With Amazon’s support, we have set up a highly efficient operational team. This has allowed us to serve our customers well in all the territories in which we currently operate. I want to continue growing with Amazon and aim to expand to other geographical locations across India in the next 2 to 3 years.”

Amazon has continued to invest in speed with the expansion of its 1-day, same-day, and sub-same-day networks. 1-day delivery is enabled in many remote towns, such as Mangaldoi in Assam, Mohanur in Tamil Nadu, and Dehra Gopipur in Himachal Pradesh.
