TMX Mzigo, a Kenyan-based courier and on-demand delivery company, has launched a service allows customers to make large quantity orders online from different parts of the world and list their products for sale on the TMX Duka. TMX Mzigo clears the products, stores and sells them through its website, leaving the customer with no hustle on importation processes.
It rides on new technologies where one can live-track a parcel or goods in real-time. Both the sender and receiver can track their parcel’s journey through the Tmxmzigo App.
“We continue to envision transformative approach to better our services,” says Anthony Njoroge, CEO to TMX Global. “We are soon launching a cryptocurrency, TMX Gold Coin, which our importers and exporters can use to buy or pay for their goods anywhere in the world. It’s currently in its Pre-ICO stage having acquired funding and we are now listing the coin for trading in Binance.”
With the current Covid-19 pandemic people don’t want to move around the world buying supplies. While people want to feel safe, they still need products to consume either locally or internationally. TMX Mzigo comes in to fill that gap where it ensures the customer gets products and feel like they are doing the shopping themselves.
“Our App ensures the courier takes a photo of the product the customers is buying and uploads. When the courier starts moving, the customer can track the rider and how he is moving,” Mr Njoroge says.
A recent report by Mastercard on online consumption in Kenyan market revealed that nearly four out of five (79%) surveyed consumers in Kenya are shopping more online since the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic.
Data, apparel, healthcare, banking and other FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) have seen the highest surge of online activity. An overwhelming 92% of consumers in Kenya said they had paid for data top-ups online, 67% for clothing and over 56% said they had bought computers and other equipment.
The delivery services company offered services during lockdown – from protection kits, food and medicines to regions and areas that were badly affected, alleviating suffering for families who could not access essentials.
