The eCommerce industry has taken a boom in this festive season. Giant eCommerce platforms are competing against each other, thus offering discounts and offers to their customers. However, the season of their selling and shopping will give rise to almost 3 lakhs jobs created, states a report.

70% of the jobs created by eCommerce platforms are from giant platforms Amazon, Flipkart, and many others. Apart from just the platforms, logistic companies such as Ecomm Express too will be a part of the job creation. 

Major roles played by newer employees will be a part of the logistics department. They will be responsible for the efficient and quick delivery of packages. While the other roles would be a part of the warehouse and customer relationship and services. 

The festive season is a crucial part of the year for eCommerce platforms. The heavy investments made way before the sales begin are done for efficient order fulfillment. In order to meet higher demands, online sellers as well the platforms ensure they have ticked all the boxes before the sale dates are even announced. 

Amazon India alone will create 100000 jobs during the festive season. The major reason for this is the quick and efficient delivery of goods during peak order demands. However, the jobs created will be seasonal jobs. As published in Business Standard, Amazon India said, “This, along with today’s announcement, is another step forward in Amazon India’s commitment to creating one million job opportunities in India by 2025 through continued investments in technology, infrastructure, and its logistics network.”
