A very important aspect of online retail is logistics. Without it one cannot be able to fully exploit the capabilities of an online store. Every online retailer needs an efficient and reliable logistics partner to enable them succeed. Therefore I am happy to see that Sendy an internet driven courier on demand service has become so successful that they have expanded from Nairobi to Kisumu and now Mombasa.
Launched just two years ago, Sendy focuses on providing convenience, competitive pricing, speed and excellent customer service, allowing individual customers and businesses to track the movement and location of their packages in real time using their app and web platform.
Sendy was the first recipient of the Safaricom Spark Fund last year. The Spark Fund supports development and growth of high potential mobile tech startups in Kenya. As part of Safaricom’s investment, Sendy received access to strategic partnerships, network elements and a mix of marketing opportunities that are clearly bearing fruit.
Sendy is now able to connect Mombasa, Nairobi and Kisumu offering overnight, door to door deliveries city to city. One can be able to send anything from a small envelope to several tons of cement door to door from Mombasa to Nairobi.
They have a promotion dubbed “New City Promotion” that aims to help new users discover the service. As part of the promotion, all orders will be 90% off for the month of November.
