Thus far, when you are planning to relocate your house or office furniture in Kenya, you must coordinate with transport service providers before the date you want the relocation done. If you have an impromptu plan to relocate, you will find it difficult to secure transportation service, and when you do find it, it will be exorbitant.
In a way, that is exactly how the old taxi business used to operate. You had to have a number of a taxi service company or a cab driver to call before your departure. That all changed when Uber launched, an on-demand taxi hailing service allowing commuters to secure a ride from few taps on their smartphones.
While getting a taxi is no longer a hassle thanks to the likes of Uber, Taxify, Lift, and Littlecab among others. Well, there is now a new service in Kenya inspired by the revolutionary technology behind Uber, which allows users to call for a pickup, truck, and semi-trailers from the convenience of their smartphones.
Dubbed, Senga, this one-stop shop for all your trucking needs has rolled out its service across Kenya. Allowing users to call for a pickup, truck, and semi-trailer services from a push of a button on their smartphone.
Senga broke the news of its services expansion across Kenya on Facebook saying they are “taking the #shiphappy experience nationwide. Now in Nairobi, Chuka, Embu, Kerugoya, Kisii, Kutus, Nakuru, Narok, Nyahururu, Ruiru, Rumuruti, & Thika. COMING SOON to Baringo, Eldoret, Kericho, Kiambu, Kisumu, Machakos, Maragua, Matuu, Muranga, Nyandarua, & Taita Taveta.”
Senga was founded in 2016 by June Odongo and has been enlisting vetted pickup and truck drivers and connecting them to clients in need of transportation service at the click of a button. The service is accessible from both the web and mobile app.
The company prides itself on working with only vetted and trusted drivers. Clients will also enjoy predictable pricing, which will enable them actually make prior plans for their transportation needs without second guessing their budget allocation for the trucking service.
Senga is also eyeing to spread its wings outside Kenya and into other African countries as part of its pan-African expansion drive. However, the company must wrestle it out with Lorisystems, another local Kenya web and mobile app based freight services.
