Kenyan ride-hailing company Little is venturing into the logistics business, CEO Kamal Budhabhatti has announced.
“We learned and mastered the art of Corporate Ride-Hailing – and became a dominant player. Now it’s time to learn again. Launching Little Logistics. City, Intercity, and Cross border. Little App. Super excited. I can’t stop thinking about how great our team is,” Kamal said.
The company is already piloting the service with two corporate customers as it prepares to launch it commercially in June.
“We have several customers on Little who have been demanding for such service, and clearly telling us that services and products from other providers are not up to the mark compared to Little services. So, we realized the need.” Kamal explained.
The logistics business has been one of the fastest-growing, attracting highly-successful startups such as Sendy which also offers fulfilment services. Little is not offering fulfilment services for the time being.
Little says the service will be available on its corporate portal as well as the mobile app. The service will commence in major towns around the country before expanding across the region.
The e-cab hailing company has been having a good run in its niche, going head-to-head with Uber and Bolt.
