The e-commerce players in Bangladesh, who are serving the people of the country by providing all essential requirements at their doorstep amidst countrywide shutdown in view of the Coronavirus outbreak, have got permission to continue operating hassle-free.
To allow the members of the E-Commerce Association of Bangladesh (E-CAB) carry out emergency and routine services without any hindrance, the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has given them permission to plying bicycles, motorbikes and cover-vans to provide services to the people.
“The companies that sell essential goods and medicines are running their operations. A2i, post offices and law enforcers are helping them deliver their products timely,” earlier maintained President of E-CAB, Mohammad Sahab Uddin.
The DMP allowed the E-CAB members to continue operations through a letter issued by the DMP headquarters.
This was informed by the E-CAB in a press release, issued recently.
However, another worry for these players has been the rapidly dwindling number of delivery agents, who are allegedly keeping away from work in fear of contracting the dreaded COVID-19.
Interacting with people on a daily basis, which increase chances of getting infected by the virus, has led family members of many of these agents to keep away from work, Sazzadul further added.
