Entrepreneurship is often an arduous journey, but the ride can become exciting and rewarding with the right partner. Meet Sachin and Manisha Sharma, a husband-wife duo who have expanded their life partnership to business. The couple runs a thriving logistics business across North India. They started with one delivery station in 2015 in Delhi. Today, they operate 45 delivery stations in 21 cities across Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand and Delhi-NCR to deliver Amazon packages as delivery service partners.
Discovering the passion for entrepreneurship
Sachin, a postgraduate in International Business from Amity University, Noida, joined his family-owned warehouse in 2006 and got married to Manisha. After 8 years, he realised that he wanted to build a new entrepreneurship venture. In 2015, he was introduced to Amazon India's delivery service partner program by a friend. He took a leap of faith into entrepreneurship along with Manisha, who has a master’s degree in English. Together they founded M&M Logistics Solutions as Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners in October 2015.
Expansion across North India
“The journey to entrepreneurship as Amazon’s Delivery Service Partner has been very fulfilling. While there have been challenges on the path but we cherish every moment. Over the last 8 years, we have grown exponentially, creating diverse opportunities for people and ancillary businesses across North India. All this has been possible because of my wife’s incredible support and Amazon’s partnership," says Sachin. On her part, Manisha says, “I have always believed in being independent and Amazon has given us an opportunity fulfil our entrepreneurship dream and to create work opportunities for locals across different geographies where we operate. Amazon’s training, delivery technology and immense knowledge in the logistics sector has not only helped us against the initial business challenges but also enabled our business to grow exponentially,” says Manisha.
After 8 years of running their logistics business successfully, Sachin and Manisha believe they are just getting started. Over the next few years, they aim to expand their business to new cities across Haryana and Uttarakhand, India.
Creating work opportunities
Karuna Shankar Pande, Director of Amazon Logistics in India, says, “It brings me great pride to see the growth journey of M&M Logistics Solutions, and other small and mid-sized businesses growing exponentially and benefiting from Amazon’s Delivery Service Partner program. With the right guidance, these entrepreneurs not only build a successful business, but they also create opportunities for people at large.”
