Sendy introduces insurance options to protect customer packages during delivery


On-demand delivery platform Sendy has introduced insurance options on the platform in a move to help safeguard customer packages during delivery as demand for delivery services increase in the country.

Sendy which is present in various parts of the country says the introduction of insurance options was in response to growing demand from its customers.

“We’re excited to announce our new insurance partnership in order to offer Sendy users more flexible and comprehensive protection on their packages,” said the firm.

The new development will see users insure their motorcycle deliveries up to KES 50,000 (for KES 10 only) and truck deliveries up to KES 5,000,000 (for KES 200 within a city, and KES 400 between cities). The firm says the previous insurance plan of KES 4,000 coverage has been phased out and will no longer be available.

“To protect your deliveries under the new comprehensive carrier liability plan, make sure to opt in when prompted before placing a delivery,” the firm announced. Sendy has been expanding across the country gradually and aims to expand across East Africa.
