It is the first online delivery company to work with the Indian Railways to build an express transportation product via rail in 2019.

During the pandemic-induced lockdown in 2020, the company worked with the Indian Railways to prioritise intercity movement of high-priority products by leveraging the ‘Covid-19 Parcel Special Trains’.

Amazon India said it delivers 100% serviceable PIN codes, with more than 97% of PIN codes now being able to receive their deliveries within two days of placing an order.
