RIYADH: Saudi-based B2B platform Sary enabled SR1 billion ($266.6 million) of purchases for more than 30,000 SMEs in the past two years, Co-Founder and CEO Mohammed Aldossary told Al Arabiya on Thursday.
“Sary works on facilitating more than 60,000 shipments every month,” he added.
The company has multiplied its market share 10 times in 2020 compared to 2019, he said. The company’s current share of the public market is less than 1 percent, but it constitutes 80 percent in the modern wholesale market for the e-commerce business sector in the Kingdom, he said.
The company aims to expand in the Kingdom and the Middle East and expects to reach profitability in 2022, Aldossary said. Sary also plans to extend its business to categories beyond the consumer goods that it currently focuses on, he said.
Sary is a B2B marketplace that connects small businesses with wholesalers and brands in one place to procure supply efficiently, according to the company’s website.
It raised $30.5 million in Series B funding in May, leading Saudi Arabia’s total of $46.6 million and the MENA region’s $110 million, according to data from the Wamda entrepreneurship platform.
