South African Bike on-demand delivery startup, Sendr is set to launch a mobile application later this month. According to reports gathered online, the mobile application is set to be made available for users this week or next.
Sendr has been focusing on providing an express service for small business like law firms and advertising agencies which need documents delivered within the hour – but it is looking to expand its base.
Lekgabo reportedly told ventureburn that the company started with a fleet of just 10 motorbikes in October, but it now has a 100-strong fleet and plans to have 500 bikes on the road by October/November this year.
The ventureburn article said that Sendr “wants to start inviting self-owned bike owners to join the company” – in other words, it is using a “crowdsourcing” model.
The company, founded by CEO Neo Lekgabo, chief technology officer George Sibotshiwe and a handful of other investors, “soft launched” in October last year, using an email-based system while the app was still in development.
