Logistics platform Amitruck and e-commerce platform Sky.Garden have announced a partnership aiming to form an end-to-end digital chain for goods pick-up and deliveries to the last mile.

The collaboration between the two tech start-up companies will allow more than 6,000 B2B clients to keep their business alive and maintain jobs across many industries they support.

Speaking on the partnership announcement, Mark Mwangi, CEO of Amitruck said that 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.

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.

According to the African Tech Startups Funding Report 2020 released by startup news and research portal Disrupt Africa, the year 2020 saw $190 million in investments flow into Kenya, which remains at the top of Africa’s list of recipients. The two companies have recently announced funding from top investment firms and intend to develop their activities further across Africa this year.

“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.

Collaborating since 2019, Amitruck and Sky.Garden are hot players in digital logistics and e-commerce having already contributed to 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 than 54 countries across the Continent.
