Kenyan based delivery platform Sendy has reduced prices of pickup, van and truck deliveries by up to 33%. According to the company, the price cut is aimed at bringing more small and medium businesses to do deliveries through the Sendy platform.
Sendy Founder and CEO Meshack Alloys said in a press statement that the decision to reduce prices for these vehicle categories was in a move to increase deliveries for Pickup, Vans, and Trucks while creating demand for drivers using their platform to make an income.
“We decided to reduce prices of these vehicle types not only to increase uptake of customers doing deliveries with us but most importantly, to create demand of our pickup, vans, and trucks for our drivers,” he said.
With over 5,000 businesses already doing deliveries with Sendy, the company hopes to increase this number following the reduction of price for these vehicle types, mostly used by businesses.
“We would like to get on board as many businesses as we can to do deliveries with us efficiently using technology, to save them time and logistics costs. We would also like to target the SMEs such as the hardware owners and the mama mbogas to do deliveries using our platform by offering them affordable delivery prices. We currently have over 5,000 businesses and hope to double this number with the various initiatives we are undertaking including making our prices competitive as well as having more partners to fulfill all our clients’ needs” Mr. Alloys added.
Recently, Sendy signed up over 5,000 businesses by connecting them to the Motorcycles, pickups, vans, and trucks in the platform, in a bid to help them optimize their logistics while saving on their operational costs and time spent on doing deliveries internally.
