Amazon rolls out a delivery station exclusively for the deaf
January 18, 2018
E commerce giant Amazon has introduced a 'Silent Delivery Station' that will be completely managed by deaf employees. This is an initiative to create more job opportunities for the hearing impaired.
The station has been launched in partnership with Mirakle Couriers, a company in Mumbai that has trained its deaf employees to deliver packages by bus or on foot to the radius of 2-3 kms. They are also trained in sign language.
Amazon says this is part of its effort to create opportunities for individuals to realise their potential and transform their lives. The pilot program was introduced a year and a half back and, after seeing a good result, Amazon decided to roll out a dedicated delivery station for the deaf.
Mirakle Couriers hopes this will set an example for many in India to support the disabled by giving them relevant opportunities and improve their livelihood.
