NAS Airport Sevices launches e-commerce platform

NAS Airport Services has launched its own online commerce store which enables the company to sell food and laundry services directly to consumers. The online store is in partnership with DPO Group, one of Africa’s leading digital payment companies, supported by Sendy Marketplace, a logistics platform in Africa that enables businesses to trade with ease, who will undertake deliveries to clients right to their doorsteps.

Brands featured in the site are Tanafo which is a ready-to-eat meal brand whose name was birthed through a brand naming competition by staff. Tanafo offers ready to eat lamb chops, chicken wings, and beef ribs, among other options, and caters to client segments who have busy lifestyles and prefer convenience. Other brands include the NAS Pristine Laundry brand and Table 49 restaurant featured on the site

The General Manager, NAS Airport Services Ltd, Mr. Stephane Lopez noted that this was a major gateway to providing world class meals and laundry services to the B2C market; which previously was only accessible to B2B clients. Said Mr. Lopez, “Previously we’ve mostly focused on servicing businesses but this new partnership enables us to take our brand to the wider consumer market by tapping into opportunities offered through e-commerce. We are excited to partner with DPO Group and Sendy Limited to make this dream a reality.”

NAS Airport Services Ltd Chairman Mr. Richard Omwela was excited that in these challenging times staff and Management are being innovative to meet our clients’ expectations. He added that the world is moving to E- commerce and we either move or be left in the archives of History.

DPO Group CEO Mr. Eran Feinstein also noted that with the social distance requirements brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has increasingly embraced e-commerce with safety being the key consideration. Mr. Feinstein said the new platform will provide consumers with options to order goods and services from NAS Airport Services Limited, pay for them securely online or offline through DPO and await their delivery all from the comfort of their homes or work places.
