We held our first ever Partner Open Day on Saturday 13th April bringing together hundreds of partners signed up on our platform at the Nairobi Show Ground. We held the event in a bid to celebrate and award Truck and Motorcycle drivers for the hard work done through the platform over the years, collect partner feedback and share our plans for the future. We also used the opportunity to engage Drivers on safety ahead of the safety compliance deadline for bodaboda(Motorcycle) riders set by the Kenyan Ministry of Transport.
We were joined by various partners including Galana Oil and Hino. Motorcycle drivers also received free service and cleaning for their bikes.
Speaking at the event, Sendy Founder and CEO, Mr Meshack Alloys said that recognizing their drivers and engaging them is part of the many initiatives they are doing to ensure that their drivers are in the know of company’s mission, vision and future plans. He noted that safety is key in ensuring that the logistics sector is formalized, being part of the reason he started Sendy.
“Our drivers are the backbone of Sendy. Recognizing their hard work is therefore very important to us. Through this event, we will be awarding our hardworking and dedicated drivers as well us reiterating the need for them to comply with safety rules ahead of the May 2019 deadline.
For one to qualify as a Partner on this platform they have to have a valid driving licence, certificate of good conduct and national identity card. They will also be required to undergo a rigorous onboarding session. They will then be logged in on the Sendy Partner app and allowed to make deliveries on the platform. Sendy also provides insurance coverage of all items transported through its platform while in transit.
