"We’re always innovating to bring our customers new levels of convenience and delivery options that work best for them; making Same-Day Delivery, within hours the latest example of delivery innovations that give customers more choice, speed, and convenience", Abhinav Singh, Director, Customer Fulfilment, Supply Chain and Amazon Transportation Services, Amazon India said.
Customers in cities such as Surat, Mysuru, Mangalore, Bhopal, Nashik, Nellore, Anantapur, Warangal, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and Patna, beside several others, will have a swifter shopping experience. Amazon first introduced Same-Day Delivery in India in 2017 and has continued to invest in speed to enable fast, reliable and convenient delivery options for customers.
In 2021, Amazon launched Amazon Day, giving Prime members the option of choosing a day to have all their items grouped and delivered together each week. For easy accessibility and better convenience, customers also have the option if picking up their packages from designated ‘pick up points’.
