E-cab firm Little has announced that it will be venturing into the logistics business following a successful run in corporate cab-hailing, which the firm launched a few years ago. The announcement was made by Little CEO Kamal Budhabhatti.
“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,” said CEO Kamal.
The ride hailing company is currently piloting the service with two corporate customers. In the event that the piloting goes well, the commercial launch will be announced during the first week of June, 2022.
Little is not the only company taking advantage of the huge need for logistics services. Other companies have been in the space for an extended period, including Sendy which even offers fulfillment services. Little, on the other hand, is not offering fulfillment for the moment.
“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 further noted.
The service will be accessed via a Corporate Portal. It will also be available on the Little mobile app as an extension.
The first phase of the product will serve customers in major towns in Kenya although there are also plans to expand the service regionally.
