Mahindra Logistics Ltd. (MLL), an Indian integrated logistics and mobility solutions provider, announced today that it has partnered with women e-bike riders for its last-mile deliveries in an effort to achieve true equality.
With this objective, MLL has appointed a total of 11 women riders for last-mile delivery across Mumbai, Bangalore and Nagpur in the first phase of this initiative. Furthermore, the company provides comprehensive training to women candidates for safely riding e-bikes, operating last-mile delivery, and soft skills.
Commenting on the announcement, Rampraveen Swaminathan, MD & CEO, Mahindra Logistics, said: “As a part of our expansion plans, on-boarding more women drivers, fleet owners and other transporters will be a major focus for us at MLL.”
The organization stands by the safety of its women drivers by deploying vehicles integrated with GPS tracking which enables MLL to trouble-shoot any concerns of prolonged stoppage or diversion from the designated route.
