Egyptian logistics startup Sprint has plans to expand to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and other countries in the MENA region after signing up almost 500 merchant customers at home. Founded by Mohamed Deif in 2019, the Cairo-based Sprint offers last mile delivery solutions to e-commerce merchants, with a focus on micro-merchants with monthly volumes as low as 30 orders a month. The startup has operations hubs all over Egypt, and its delivery network covers 24 governorates. Customers have access to a web portal where they can upload all their shipments, track shipment status, view inventory stored at Sprint warehouses, and see a complete overview of their financials. Sprint, whose technology can be easily integrated with major e-commerce platforms such as Shopify and WooCommerce, currently serves 460 active customers, ranging between micro-merchants with one or twp daily orders up to mega accounts with 900-1,200 shipments per day.
