The coronavirus disease outbreak has heavily disrupted the transport industry, leaving many players with little activity. However, those that offer a variety of services have opted to offer the best available alternatives to keep business going and customers equally served.
Among these is SafeBoda, which is sticking to offering home delivery services in Uganda, following the government announcement to temporarily ban on public transport and private cars.
According to the company, they are making sure that their 18,000 SafeBoda riders and the growing community of entrepreneurs such as food and market vendors and shopkeepers can continue to provide for their families.
“We are therefore making food and grocery delivery safe during this COVID19 pandemic and lock down. This is important to us because safety and community has always been our priority. In addition to this all deliveries will be free.”
Literally all the still-open service and product providers are relying on the app for delivery to and from clients since there is no authorization of any other means of transportation at the moment. The customers alike, especially the app users, are now finding convenience in using the app for household needs.
While everyone stays home and stays safe, SafeBoda is willing to be at your service for all your daily needs.
