A group of Omani entrepreneurs has launched a door to door delivery service in the country, aiming to enhance Oman’s domestic last mile fulfilment sector.

Mandoob is a 100 per cent Omani company, which works as a mediator, delivering different items and requests to and from consumers all over the country.

The company says it is able to carry out “any door to door delivery,” ordered by a customer via phone, Twitter, WhatsApp messages and soon via their own mobile application.

“Our project helped us and other young Omanis from across the country to have an income, as well as helped the small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) owners to grow their business by offering them mediators when needed,” said Al Hussain Al Bahri, one of the Mandoob’s founders.

“Women are also part of our team, in fact a few of our best mediators are female,” he added.

Al Bahri also added that this company follows the concept of a sharing economy, which is a social activity involving online transactions, similar to Uber and Carriage in Saudi Arabia.

The idea for Mandoob began in 2015, when Al Bahri and four others started to collaborate with SME owners and work as their mediators, and in June this year they expanded their business, added new members from all over Oman to the team and set no limits for their door to door services.

"As any small growing company, we faced many challenges, starting with finding an office with the suitable rent amount, and finding an effective way to communicate with all the mediators," Al Bahri said.

He added that anyone can become part of the team by filling the online application attached to the company’s Twitter account and get his money transferred to his bank account after seven days.
