Tarsus Distribution now has the ability to process orders and get small items delivered in under two hours in parts of Gauteng through a new, recently-launched logistics service.
That service is called Tarsus Xpress, and it’s the distributor’s latest way of delighting their partners by giving them the ability to get small orders to their clients within two hours of clicking the Buy button.
Tarsus Xpress is available in Gauteng, and delivers to addresses that are within a 30km radius of the company’s distribution centre, located in Woodmead, Johannesburg.
Deliveries are facilitated through a partnership with local startup, Sendr, which uses a fleet of delivery motorbikes to get small packages where they’re needed, fast.
Of course, as such the ordered items must fit into a motorbike courier’s luggage box, so there’s no option to order an HPE Superdome Flex Server for delivery via Tarsus Xpress. The products that can be sent using Tarsus Xpress are indicated by a blue “pin drop” on their Tarsus Distribution online portal page.
Shirlinia Jacobs, general manager: channel sales at Tarsus Distribution says “In a world that is moving at breakneck speed, the CEO often cannot wait until the next day for a replacement of a faulty notebook, nor can office printing and copying grind to a halt because toner has run out. With this new service, we enable our resellers to speed up fulfilment of emergency orders, in turn delighting their customers with rapid turnaround times when they need urgent help to keep their business running smoothly.
“We are committed to driving entrepreneurial development and have partnered with SendR, an SMME entrepreneur, to offer this service to our channel partners. Sendr is an on-demand delivery service, utilising motorcycles to deliver items for businesses and running personal errands for customers. We look forward to creating value for Tarsus Distribution customers with them,” Jacobs concludes.
