Posta Kenya offering “at cost” last mile delivery for essential products
This partnership is in line with the continuous commitment from Jumia and Posta to ensure that all citizens have access to critical goods during the Coronavirus outbreak. Customers now will pay only Ksh 100 + VAT (Ksh 116) to collect their orders from Postal Pick Up Stations outside Nairobi.
“We are proud to collaborate with Posta Kenya to reduce the price of delivery for customers countrywide at this critical time. To support communities around the country, we are offering “at cost” last mile delivery for essential products (food, hygiene, etc). This allows customers to get access to critical goods at fair prices at a time when availability & high pricing is a concern for some,” said Sam Chappatte, Jumia Kenya CEO. Adding; “E-commerce platforms like ours, with e-payment and last mile delivery capabilities through partners like Posta, are in a good position to be part of Kenya’s response to this pandemic.”
With the new partnership, customers while shopping on Jumia, will have the option to pick-up products from a Post Office close to them.
“In support of the fight against coronavirus, Posta Kenya has partnered with Jumia to reduce pick up fee to only Kes 116 from all Posta Kenya pick up points outside Nairobi,” said Postmaster General & CEO of The Postal Corporation of Kenya, Dan Kagwe. “In addition, we will avail buckets of clean water plus soap in all our stations to ensure proper hygiene standards in all our pick-up offices.”
