Introducing New Multi-Parcel Shipments and Convenient Drop-off & Pickup

November 8, 2023

Today, we're thrilled to introduce two exciting new features: Multi-parcel shipments and Enhanced Drop-off and pickup options!

Why Multi-Parcel Shipments Matter

Sometimes, you have more than one parcel to send to the same recipient, or maybe you're shipping different items. Imagine sending a pair of shoes and a package of dried fish in the same shipment. With Multi-Parcel Shipments, it's a breeze! Here's why it's a game-changer:

The Power of Flexibility

Multi-parcel shipments give you the flexibility you need when your shipments exceed the weight limits for a single parcel. It also helps you ship items that are quite different like a pair of shoes alongside your favourite dried fish. No more worrying about fitting everything into one box; just split your shipment across multiple parcels, and you're good to go! 

Save Time and Money

Optimising your shipments has never been this efficient. Multi-Parcel Shipments help you make the most of your shipping costs and time. No need to pay for an oversized parcel, and no need to waste time repackaging items to fit them into one box.

How to Use Multi-Parcel Shipments

Getting started with Multi-Parcel Shipments is a breeze. Here's a quick guide:

  1. Update Your App: Ensure you have the latest version of the Terminal Africa app.
  2. Create a New Shipment: Begin by creating a new shipment as you normally would.
  3. Add Item Details: Specify the details for each parcel, including the items within.
  4. Add More Parcels: Include other parcels with their individual item details.
  5. Review and Confirm: Double-check all your shipment details, review, and pay.

That's it! Your Multi-Parcel Shipment is now ready to go.

Drop-off Locations and Pickup

We understand that convenience matters when it comes to shipping. That's why we've revamped our Drop-off and Pickup options to make your life easier:

Find the Nearest Drop-off Hubs Effortlessly

With our Drop-off Location feature, customers can now easily locate the nearest hubs to drop off their parcels for shipments. 

The Terminal Africa app automatically uses your location to identify which hubs would be closest and most convenient for you to drop off your parcel. You'll receive the address of these hubs, making it a breeze to choose the most convenient one.

Enhanced Pickup Options for Every Carrier

Our Pickup feature has been improved to cater to every carrier you choose on the Terminal Africa app. Whether you prefer a specific carrier or are open to options, we've got a seamless Pickup experience waiting for you.


Whether you're a business or individual shipping multiple parcels or looking for hassle-free drop-off and pickup options, Terminal Africa has you covered. These new features are all about flexibility and saving you time and money.
