Pargo, the South African smart logistics firm, has expanded into neighbouring countries Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland.
Pargo’s move will help South African companies send parcels internationally, at the same time offering customers in those countries an affordable and convenient delivery option. The service is initially being offered to large corporates seeking to expand into new markets.
The move by Pargo follows requests from its clients who saw increased growth in e-commerce in those markets. To meet demand those countries are opening up to e-commerce from South Africa and other markets.
Cross-border delivery between the countries in question can be complicated and expensive, even with increased demand from Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland. Pargo streamlines these issues for its South African clients.
Under the offering, the end to end Pargo service deals with freight, customs clearance the final mile delivery.
This part of the world is peculiar for its poor road and rail networks. This is rounded through the Pick up Points that leave it to the customer to collect instead of the courier delivering to the hard-to-reach address.
