Additionally, Khazenly’s technology and fulfillment platform are designed to improve success rate and decrease returns pain for e-commerce merchants.

Mohamed Younes, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are thrilled to count on the presence of so many of our existing valued partners today and welcome all of our new merchant customers. We are delighted to see the rapid adoption of the Khazenly platform by merchants across the country as testimony to our advanced technology platform, experienced team and network of market-leading partners – as we continue to lead the digitalization of logistics and fulfillment services.

We look forward to continuing to grow our merchant network across Egypt, which we hope to grow by six times over the next 12 months.”

The event brought together new and existing merchants to hear from Khazenly CEO and co-founder, Mohamed Younes, on the future of e-commerce in Egypt and the Middle East, as well as a panel discussion with merchants to discuss retail and supply chain challenges across different industries. Customers at the event also gave testimonies to their successful partnership with the digital logistics startup, from experiential retail to omni-channel fulfillment.

Arrow Food Trading revealed Nespresso’s deliveries to customers have significantly reduced to under two hours since adopting Khazenly’s technology.

Tawfiq Fayyad, Managing Director at Arrow Food Trading, commented: “We’re thrilled with our collaboration with Khazenly. It has been very fruitful for both parties. Khazenly’s tech savvy background as well as their sophisticated software system was the driving factor behind a project that would augment Arrow Food Trading’s-Nespresso exclusive distributor-logistics chain.

“This collaboration gave birth to the “floating store” project which aims to uplift customer satisfaction levels as well as convenience.  The idea was to maximize the efficiency of the delivery service from two days to two hours. The project is currently in beta phase in order to filter out potential bugs and operational glitches that could affect the process. All in all, we are optimistic that this is only the stepping stone towards a more solid consumer-centric approach.”

Proceeds will be used to develop Khazenly’s products and services, and quadruple its existing facilities. Geographical expansion will also be supported as Khazenly continues its rapid growth trajectory during 2022.
