Tencent Technology News, June 9 news, according to foreign media reports, e-commerce giant Amazon recently said that the company is expanding its “Packageless Shipping” (PFS) program to Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Nag. Poole and other 9 cities. PFS is an initiative launched by Amazon in India first.
As envisaged by the PFS scheme, orders will be shipped in their original packaging without any need for secondary or additional packaging, and the scheme will also take place in Bengaluru, Gurugram, Noida, Chennai and Hyderabad Expand.
With this move, Amazon aims to reduce the waste generated by the secondary packaging of customer orders. An Amazon India spokesperson said: “This is an India-first initiative and is linked to Amazon’s global ‘Shipment Zero’ vision. The pilot started in Bengaluru last July when we provided the relevant Customer orders, unpacked, and received positive feedback.”
Under its “zero shipping” vision, Amazon aims to reduce the carbon footprint of all its shipping products to 50 percent by 2030. The plan applies to certain orders based on predefined parameters, such as the customer’s location, the distance the order must travel, and the product category ordered. Products shipped without packaging include auto accessories, tech accessories, home improvement products, shoes and luggage.
An Amazon spokesperson said that liquid, fragile items or products that require privacy protection will never ship packaging for free.
Akhil Saxena, vice president of Amazon India, said feedback from customers suggests they are looking for more sustainable packaging solutions. “This has spurred new packaging innovations – delivering products without packaging. Our investment in protecting the environment ensures a triple win, which is good for our planet, our customers and communities, and ourselves,” he said.
Saxena also said that customers who received orders without secondary packaging can learn about the move via email and the paper bag that was placed on their actual shipping packaging.
