Sendy & Lami Technologies join forces to Launch Per-Trip Insurance Policies in Kenya

Lami Technologies, a Kenyan insurance technology (insurtech) company that aims to democratize insurance products and services for low-income Kenyans, has teamed with Sendy Limited, a tech-logistics company, to enable transporters in Kenya to access simple, hassle-free, and affordable insurance products customized on a per-trip basis.

This partnership supports the logistic industry by digitizing access to insurance for transporters, protecting them against all risks of physical loss or damage from any external cause during transit.

Powered by Lami’s insurance API, transporters moving cargo will be able to swiftly digitize their insurance policy requirements on Sendy’s online freight dashboard for shipment across the country and within East Africa for cargo valued up to KSh5 million (US$45,277).
