Bolt Launches Same-Day Parcel Delivery Service in South Africa

Bolt, the popular ride-hailing company, has introduced an exciting new service in South Africa—Bolt Send. This same-day parcel delivery service, available in northern Johannesburg, allows customers to send gifts and small parcels conveniently using the Bolt app. Powered by My Next Car's fleet of Bajaj Qute quadricycles, Bolt Send aims to provide reliable delivery solutions while offering additional earning opportunities for Bolt's driver-partners.

Expanding Services to Meet Growing Demand:

With the increasing demand for reliable delivery services, Bolt's strategic expansion into parcel delivery is a testament to our commitment to innovation. Bolt Send represents a significant addition to the ride-hailing platform's offerings, catering to evolving user needs and preferences. By leveraging its existing infrastructure and technology, Bolt and My Next Car aims to deliver a solution that meets and exceeds user expectations, maintaining its reputation for efficiency and innovation.

Empowering Driver-Partners:

Bolt Send benefits customers and provides an additional source of income for Bolt's driver-partners. As economic challenges persist, offering drivers opportunities to earn extra income is crucial. Through Bolt Send, driver-partners can leverage their vehicles to provide dedicated delivery services, contributing to their financial stability during tough times.

Convenient and User-Friendly:

Customers can access Bolt Send seamlessly through the app, enjoying the same user-friendly features and simple pricing structure as Bolt's ride-hailing services. With live in-app tracking and notifications, customers can monitor their parcels' journey from pickup to delivery, ensuring a hassle-free experience. The intuitive interface makes it easy for customers to schedule parcel pickups and share trip details with recipients.

Insurance and Parcel Requirements:

While Bolt Send offers convenience and efficiency, it's essential to note that the service doesn't provide insurance coverage for package loss, damage, or theft. Additionally, parcels must adhere to specific size and value restrictions to qualify for Bolt Send. These measures ensure the safety and security of both customers' parcels and driver-partners.

Bolt's launch of Bolt Send underscores its commitment to innovation and meeting the evolving needs of its users. By expanding its services to include parcel delivery, Bolt aims to provide convenient, reliable, and efficient solutions while empowering its driver-partners to earn additional income. As Bolt Send and My Next Car rolls out in northern Johannesburg, customers can look forward to seamless parcel delivery experiences powered by Bolt's trusted platform and dedicated driver-partners.
