MEVP Invests in One Click Delivery Services
Middle East Venture Partners (MEVP) has made an undisclosed investment in Dubai-based One Click Delivery Services (1click2deliver.com), a last-mile delivery startup enabling seamless delivery services from local businesses to the consumer’s doorstep.
One Click has built a technology platform that allows it to connect drivers, points of sale and a call centre with businesses needing on-demand delivery. One Click’s platform powers businesses across different verticals, including food delivery, apparel, e-commerce, groceries, and parcel delivery, providing them with on-demand affordable last-mile delivery whereby the hassle and inefficiency of managing a fleet of drivers is eliminated. The entire delivery process is technology enabled, with a robust delivery management system featuring GPS locations tracking, route optimization and automated customer notifications.
“I am really excited about what we are building; we are solving the ‘last-mile’ logistics problem by providing a technology-enabled ecosystem solution, that connects businesses and drivers to a cloud platform, enabling smoother and seamless operations,” said Hassan Hallas, CEO & Co-Founder of One Click.
One Click manages a rapidly growing fleet of drivers, and has to date delivered more than one million orders. The company is quickly gaining momentum powering the on-demand economy, growing at 36% month to month, and the founders are looking to expand to other cities in the GCC.
"We were impressed with what the One Click team has achieved in such a short period of time,” noted Walid Mansour, Partner and Chief Investment Officer at MEVP. “We believe that winning in the last-mile delivery space will require strong technology coupled with exceptional operational capabilities that can make on-demand last-mile logistics economically viable; unlike other players in the space, One Click has a positive contribution margin.”
One Click will use the new capital to accelerate its growth plans, continue to build its team and further develop its proprietary technology.
