Sendy will offer freight services to serve clients’ needs in transporting cargo domestically, across East Africa, and throughout the continent.
The logistics company has concluded piloting its cargo feature by matching large transporters with businesses moving their cargo from the port of Mombasa and the Inland Container Depot to different countries across Africa.
The successful pilot has clocked over 1,500 deliveries of 18 to 30 tonnes and more since its launch.
Sendy Founder and CEO Mr Meshack Alloys said the addition of Freight on the Sendy platform was prompted by existing Sendy customers hoping to leverage the company’s technological expertise for their larger cargo needs.
“Following customer requests, we have officially extended Freight services to our platform to help solve long-haul logistics problems. This rise in demand from our clients directly informed our decision to use our technology in reducing the time it takes to clear cargo from depots and to help decongest the Inland Container Depot,” said Mr Alloys.
Sendy currently covers delivery needs for over 5,000 businesses and hopes to double this with the addition of Sendy Freight to its platform.
