Necessity is the mother of invention. Sixty years ago merchants had trouble shipping from San Francisco to Honolulu on time. Dalsey, Handy and Lane thought the quickest way to get documents from San Francisco to Honolulu would be by airplane instead of water. They also felt that if they could clear the cargo before its arrival at the harbor waiting time would reduce considerably. Today, after decades of existence and many ground breaking innovations, the benefits of express delivery have not been exploited by many of the average Rwandans. Just imagine you had everything you need where you need to be in the exact time that you expect.
Think that this is not limited to a birthday card or an important business document but also includes heavy machinery like engines or construction materials. You average local businessman will pay to travel thousands of miles to procure equipment, logistics or supplies and later incur heavy transportation costs back home. The shipment will usually take weeks, sometimes months.
In this age, all this can be done on the click of mouse while you kick back and enjoy a cup of tea. Get online! Search the net for a reputable supplier, pay with your credit card (Yes, they are now available in Rwanda). Put your supplier in touch with a reputable courier company; one that spins the globe and makes very regular stopovers in Rwanda.
