South African logistics company Pargo has expanded its network of parcel pick-up points to Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland to South African companies to send parcels cross-border and offer consumers in these countries a more affordable and convenient delivery option.
Pargo decided to expand its offering to the four countries following requests from its current client base who had seen an increasing demand for their products in the countries. Consumers in Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland are looking at South African retailers for product solutions, and the main challenge for retailers is often the logistics of cross-border delivery which can be more complicated and expensive.
Pargo offers a full end-to-end solution from the distribution center in South Africa to the pick-up points in the respective countries, including freight, customs clearance and last-mile delivery.
Pargo’s network of pick-up points located at thousands of retail stores gives users the flexibility to collect and return their parcels whenever it suits them. This alternative to traditional courier services is now enabling cross-border delivery at an affordable rate and helping to grow ecommerce on the continent, according to Pargo.
