Bicycling Amazon manager delivers Kindles to Himalayan school, taking customer service to new heights

Liam Ackerman doesn’t take customer service flippantly.

Final week, the Amazon UK worker biked over 300 miles to ship two Kindles to the Shey Lamdon College within the Indian Himalayas—the very best Amazon supply on the earth.

Ackerman and his two assistants biked the size of the Manali–Leh freeway, which is the second highest street on the planet. At one level, it reaches 17,480 toes, or 3.3 miles, and over the course of the journey the bikers climbed over 38,000 toes.

The journey was a fundraiser for Himalayan Children, a charity that helps schooling for kids within the Ladakh area of India.

Ackerman, an Amazon operations manager primarily based within the UK, told the newspaper the Hemel Hempstead Gazette that he was impressed to contribute to schooling in Ladakh after visiting the area eight years in the past.

“I visited a neighborhood orphanage and left with a need to return and do one thing to make a distinction to these youngsters’s lives,” the 27-year-old informed the newspaper.

The mission raised over $10,000 for the charity—plus two Kindles, and a report as the very best supply ever made by Amazon.
