TechInAfrica – Are you located in South Africa and experience long hour deliveries? Alternatively, are the delivery retailer and your customers complaining about delivery? Makro in partnership with Wumdrop gives you the solution to the whole mess.
Markro Delivery Company located in South Africa has in a position to garner more shares in the last-mile delivery startup Wumdrop. The achievement will give retailers a rare chance of shortening the delivery time when getting products to its customers.
Wumdrop works best in short-distance deliveries making the delivery time shorter within 20Km of its member warehouses from three days to only three hours. What a relief? The retailer has already connected Wumdrope services to its sixteen stores located in different towns within the country with an average delivery time of two and a half hours.
The acquisition will help Makro offer its customer a flexible and anxious fee shopping experience. The move will boost the confidence of both new and current customers of Wumdrope which comprises of The Foschini Group, Standard Bank, Zando, and Bottles.
The technology used by Wumdrop is both flexible and reliable allowing integration with both small and big retailers hence Makro could not resist the partnership according to the Markro supply chain director Mr. Dean Bauer.
Wumdrope is on a mission to integrate with Builders Warehouse and Mass Discounters. Deliveries from most partners are to be rolled down in 2018. However, Makro and Wumdrope failed to disclose the value used to square the deal making it more confidential.
