One Click Delivery Services, one of the fastest-growing digital platform companies specialising in last-mile delivery, has has hired female drivers for the first time.
The company, which was founded in 2016, has highlighted that it has managed to establish itself as a prominent player in the last-mile delivery solutions field by partnering with pioneers in the F&B, grocery, e-commerce, telecom, and pharmaceutical industry.
Its growth has been exponential during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, and it has ever since been continually increasing its fleet size to better respond to the surge of delivery – while, this time, unlocking the opportunity for women.
During the first week of August, the last-mile delivery company has added female drivers to an existing team of thousands of drivers and riders, which executes hundreds of thousands of deliveries every day, on behalf of One Click Delivery Services’ numerous clients across the region.
“Digitisation has been an identity blueprint for us, however advancement – in a broad sense – is about more than just technology. It’s about implementing a vision which aims at growing the company, while maintaining integrity and serving society. We always strive to mirror this vision through a healthy blend of different nationalities and male to female ratio,” says Ian Caron, director of operations at One Click Delivery Services.
The initiative aims to empower women by opening the door to new opportunities for them, in a field which is considered to be an exclusive domain for men. With the core goal being equality, female drivers are offered the same wage as their male counterparts.
One Click Delivery Services is currently in the process of hiring more qualified female drivers as well as motorcycle riders to the fleet team.
Alongside women’s empowerment, One Click Delivery Services is currently working on other positive initiatives which it plans to reveal after the launch of a new brand identity – intended to better match its maturity stage.
