iMile, a technology-driven delivery service, has officially expanded into Egypt with operations in two of the country’s cities, Cairo and Suez.
Born in Dubai, iMile delivers goods from e-commerce sellers in China to customers in the Middle-East, North-Africa and South-Asia ( MENA ) region. Its expansion into Egypt the company says is part of its commitment to continue supporting efficient cross-border e-commerce across this region.
With the rise of the e-commerce scene in Egypt, the company, as a platform that offers high-quality first-mile, international mile and localized last-mile delivery services, believes it is well-positioned to support the burgeoning e-commerce industry in the country.
iMile CEO, Rita Huang, speaking on the expansion said: “We have solid plans for what we want to achieve in 2021 and our launch into Egypt plays a big part in this. We aim to continue growing at a rapid pace into next year and will invest in our technology and our people to ensure we are ahead of the curve.”
The company said it believes in building collaborative partnerships that make its delivery network agile, investing in effective technologies to boost productivity, mining data to build better customer experiences and, most importantly, bring in the ‘customer obsession’ spirit to the country.
As a result, the company has partnered with two e-commerce market leaders in Egypt thus far and is working with several SMEs for door-to-door delivery.
iMile is also investing in a local team in Egypt, hiring exceptional local talent to deliver on its promise of exceptional customer experience.
Ultimately, iMile seeks to enhance cross-border e-commerce logistics and its expansion into Egypt represents an opportunity to bring customers in the MENA region even closer to sellers in China.
