Earlier this summer, the last-mile company was selected to join Abu Dhabi Investment Office‘s Innovation programme on account of its unique portfolio of digitally advanced products and its potential to become an innovation leader in last-mile logistics.
Through the programme, Lyve is granted the opportunity to grow its R&D department and accelerate the creation new digital offerings designed to further streamline and increase efficiency in the final mile.
This milestone had been preceded by the company’s launch of its first cross-border delivery solutions from the UAE to Saudi Arabia – which had been especially attractive for SMEs thanks to its competitive prices and flexible payments terms. From no minimum orders to daily schedules and reduced customs delay, Lyve helped numerous smaller ecommerce businesses penetrate the highly lucrative Saudi market.
