In the wake of the necessity of digital transformation of delivery services, The Postal Corporation of Kenya (PKC) and TAZ Technologies have entered into a partnership to ensure a more streamlined and efficient delivery process of the parcels originating from the post office.
TAZ Technologies is reportedly going to integrate the PCK into their delivery system, “Tap-A-Delivery”, an e-commerce courier service that collaborates with Uber and similar taxi companies for a faster and efficient delivery system.
“To shore up our fortunes in a digitalized economy where mail volumes have plummeted, we are now leveraging on the advent of digital globalization through modern technologies and strategic partnerships.”Dan Kagwe, the Postmaster General and CEO of PCK
With Tap-A-Delivery; along with physical mail pickup and delivery, consumers will enjoy an array of new features including alert notifications, mapping, and tracking services for the delivery of their mail. The consumers will also be able to schedule their deliveries to a later date and also pan for recurring deliveries.
“We have now a critical mass of MPost customers who have been requesting reliable last-mile delivery services. We went back to the drawing board and came up with this Tap-A-Delivery innovation that incorporates Posta and logistics companies such as Uber for efficient picks and drops of mails and parcels.”Twahir Mohamed, CTO & Co-Founder at TAZ Technologies
The PKC hopes to enable over 40 million mobile users to deliver parcels and postal items more efficiently with their recent partnership.
