Kenyan fulfillment and logistics enabler Sendy has announced funding from MOL PLUS, the corporate VC arm of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, as part of a new undisclosed round to help it scale fulfillment services in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, and Ivory Coast. The funding from MOL PLUS, which comes as part of a wider round, will be used to further that goal.
Sendy offers services for eCommerce, enterprise, and freight delivery for a client list that includes elite names like Unilever, DHL, Maersk, Kenya’s biggest telco, Safaricom, and African e-tailer, Jumia. The company uses an asset-free model, with an app that coordinates contract drivers who own their own vehicles, while confirming deliveries, creating performance metrics, and managing payment.
