Logistics Startup Sendy Faces Administration Amid Financial Crisis

Logistics Startup Sendy Faces Administration Amid Financial Crisis

Sendy has been facing a financial crisis with up to $1 million in monthly burn rate, and going into administration is the only way it can protect itself from total collapse.

Kenya-based logistics startup Sendy has entered administration due to severe financial challenges, with a monthly burn rate of up to $1 million. Going into administration allows the company to seek protection from creditors while devising a restructuring plan. Earlier attempts to find buyers for the business, including discussions with e-commerce companies Sabi and Wasoko, did not materialize as potential acquirers were wary of taking on Sendy's liabilities. Founded in 2014 and once a promising player in the logistics industry, Sendy faced difficulties exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to cost-cutting measures and a shift in business models. Despite an investment from MOL PLUS in late 2022, Sendy continued to burn cash, primarily due to rising fuel prices and economic uncertainties in Kenya.
