JSE-listed Imperial announced that it has acquired Parcelninja on 1 February 2021 in one of the largest e-commerce deals in South Africa.
Parcelninja was founded in 2013 by Justin Drennan, Ryan Drennan and Terence Murphy and it launched its first commercial services in October 2014.
It offers South African online shops an affordable outsourcing solution for all their fulfilment needs.
They integrate with most existing e-commerce engines and offer smart product warehousing, picking and packing, courier optimisation, and real-time reporting.
Parcelninja is therefore a logical fit for Imperial and helps the company to achieve its ambition of strengthening its digital offerings.
“This acquisition supports Imperial’s strategic ambitions to accelerate our digital capabilities and expand our logistics and market access services into last-mile distribution, e-commerce fulfilment, footprint and scale in Africa, while ensuring local relevance for our clients and principals,” Imperial said.
