Ecom Express, a leading tech-enabled end-to-end logistics solutions provider to the Indian e-commerce industry, has announced initiatives for Covid relief, which include setting up Covid vaccination camps for employees across multiple locations in India. These camps will be organized at the company’s offices and warehouses, and beneficiaries will include a contractual workforce covering more than 45,000 people.
This will be one of the slew of initiatives taken by the company this year in collaboration with the government and local medical bodies. It will be using its own infrastructure besides taking additional spaces across district towns and villages such as schools, community halls, etc., to set up the vaccination camps. The drive will also be extended to the families of employees and the community.
Speaking on the initiative, T.A. Krishnan, CEO, and Co-Founder, Ecom Express, says, “The health and well-being of our employees are paramount, and so is that of their families and people around them. We are encouraging and educating our employees, especially the vulnerable ones, for their active participation in this vaccination drive and bringing their family and community to be a part of this program.”
“We will extend full support to the medical bodies in the logistics and management of this drive. Our employees at these camps will also be helping citizens who cannot register themselves for the covid-vaccination with the registration process. In furtherance of our support to the cause, we have connected with hospitals and NGOs to provide logistical assistance for transportation of essential items anywhere in the country,’’ he added.
