New courier app, Sendr, delivering packages in a flash

There's another mobile app that has hit the streets to make life easier for South Africans.

On-demand delivery service, Sendr delivers packages in the metro within one hour using motorbikes.

The uber-like app is the cheapest in the market and users are able to track the journey of their package, explains co-founder George Sibotshiwe.

What's different about Sendr is that we are putting the power to pick up or drop off a parcel in the hands of the consumer or company.

Users can expect to pay R85 for deliveries within a 30 kilometre radius and R7 per kilometre there after.
