“We plan on taking our experiences from Egypt to begin operations in Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco by the third quarter (Q3) of 2022,” Mylerz’s Founder and CEO Samer Gharaibeh commented.

“This regional footprint will allow our customers to benefit from connected trade corridors across markets, which is key for our wider strategy to position Mylerz as the leading logistics partner for e-commerce across Africa,” Gharaibeh added.

For his part, Ashraf Zaki, Managing Partner at Lorax Capital Partners, said that Lorax supports Mylerz to become Africa’s first fully integrated e-commerce logistics player by offering premium customer and delivery services to both regional businesses and consumers.

Meanwhile, the CEO of Fawry Ashraf Sabry noted that Fawry’s investment in Mylerz comes as part of its strategy to create an integrated commerce ecosystem in Egypt and to discover international expansion opportunities with strong partners like Mylerz and Lorax.
