Sendy and LAMI Technologies, a Kenyan insurance technology company have announced a partnership that will enable carriers in East Africa to access simple, hassle-free, and affordable Goods in Transit insurance customized on a per-trip basis. Powered by LAMI’s insurance API, carriers across the region will automatically benefit from a free policy of up to KES 5,000,000 for all moves done on Sendy’s online freight platform.
Lami CEO Jihan Abass pointed out how the company is “working on spearheading the transition of digital insurance in Kenya.” He described the partnership with Sendy as a way to “provide transporters with access to affordable and relevant insurance products online.” Lami’s API platform offers businesses an “enhanced insurance experience.”
Transporters can now digitize their insurance policy requirements through Sendy’s online freight dashboard for shipment across the country or within East Africa to a tune of cargo value at US$45,277.
Sendy CEO Mesh Alloys described the collaboration to deliver “speed and ease of digitalization” as a way for drivers to “ take advantage of a low-cost per-trip insurance policy.” In May 2021, Lami Technologies raised $1.8 million to scale its insurance API offering.
