Sendy completes pilot and opens up its technology platform to include Freight for businesses

Sendy Logo

Logistics platform Sendy has opened up its platform to include freight services to serve clients needs to transport cargo domestically, across East Africa, and throughout the continent.

Since January 2019, the Sendy platform has been matching large transporters with businesses moving their cargo from the port of Mombasa and the Inland Container Depot to different countries across Africa.

Speaking during the announcement, 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. The company also noted the need to help decongest the Inland Container Depot and to assist customers seeking to move their cargo fast as a reason prompting the extension of Sendy’s service to Freight.

“Following requests from our customers, 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.

“A reliable last mile solution is critical in helping to decongest the inland container depot and in helping our customers move cargo fast. Our clients have wanted to benefit from Sendy’s platform across the full range of their transport needs, this decision works towards that.”

Sendy currently covers delivery needs for over 5,000 businesses and hopes to double this with the addition of Sendy Freight to its platform.’
