Egyptian courier startup Bosta plans to enter the Saudi market by early 2022, co-founder and COO Omar Yaghmour told Al Mal.

The step falls in line with the company’s plans to expand its presence in the Gulf region.

Yaghmour added that the company is also eyeing the UAE and Kuwait.

He further noted that Saudi Arabia and the UAE account for almost half of the e-commerce industry in the Middle East and are both promising growth markets.

The company also plans to expand further in Africa and is currently considering entry into Kenya, Morocco, and South Africa.

In May, the company raised a $6.7 million Series A round, providing funding to drive expansion.
