The deal will see Amitruck power last-mile delivery for Sky.Garden’s more than 6,000 B2B clients to keep their business alive and maintain jobs across many industries they support.
According to Mark Mwangi, CEO of Amitruck, “As startup and innovation culture deepens on the continent, the explosion of tech hubs across Africa has turned into an opportunity for economies to scale, despite lockdowns that are resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. This alliance will aim to keep economic and social chains alive and create growth which requires teamwork, partnerships, and technology to create a better Africa.”
Both companies have built smart technology with AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) to secure and maintain a competitive edge powered by leading players such as Amazon Web Services and Google.
The two firms have been collaborating since 2019 but due to COVID-19, they aim to serve more clients and reach more areas and improve B2B efficiencies and create hundreds of jobs, thanks to innovative digital models.
In light of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), the combination of digital logistics and e-commerce is set to unlock barriers and facilitate the accomplishment of trades within the World’s largest economic zone, including not less that 54 countries across the Continent.
“At Sky.Garden we are always delighted to find partners that are eager to disrupt the African market and bring lasting solutions that are continent specific and breed further innovation. We look forward to the leaps and bounds we can achieve together in this partnership with shared objectives and values,” said Isaac Hunja, Co-Founder & Managing Director at Sky.Garden.
