Irish courier company Zendfast will create 40 new jobs over the next three years to help them grow their business.

The company said same-day and next-day demand for on-demand services rose 114 percent over the past year as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic drove new business. It currently employs 35 people.

The current trend towards remote working has also benefited the company as more and more companies send documents, laptops, desks, chairs and care packages to employees.

Launched in 2017 by Managing Director Declan Murray, Zendfast offers a range of delivery options through a pool of drivers managed through the company’s app. The co-Dublin businessman has grown the company over the past four years with his son Colin.

Trajectory

“Our business has been growing steadily, but due to the pandemic, the population’s demand for courier-delivered goods has of course increased, but so has the number of businesses that have switched from store-to-store delivery to store-to-consumer delivery,” said Mr Murray.

“A lot of business people plan meticulously, work hard, and have great business ideas. But those who survive times of uncertainty can adapt quickly to changes and circumstances. We have seen many companies that used our services or courier services for the first time to pivot from the “normal” target market due to Covid. It’s great to see innovations like this in these times and we feel lucky to be part of their supply chain and also to be able to grow our business too. “
