Who we are
Thumeza is a fintech company that provides data powered financing for the logistics sector. The company is headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa.
We’ve been active in the logistics industry for the past 4 years, having started out as a last mile service provider. We transitioned to a freight centric platform connecting small scale transporters to large enterprises with goods to be moved. We’ve experienced the joys of landing a large client and the lows of realizing we can’t afford to service their load. This realization is what led to our eventual transition to providing working capital financing to the logistics industry. Lack of access to credit adversely affects hundreds of thousands of transporters, large and small enterprises who depend on them across the continent.
This means that as a small scale transporter, options for quick access to assistance are extremely limited should you get a post-paid trip, have a breakdown in transit, need to pay for insurance or simply need to service your vehicle and meet other day to day operational needs.
Throughout these transitions one thing has remained the same - our dedication towards working with small scale transporters. This hands on experience has lead our drive to provide empathetic alternative financing solutions powered by data, generated by your day-to-day operations, for what you and your business and need to grow.
