Wasil, which is a Lebanese word often used to say “I’m arriving right now”, is run and managed by a group of cyclists of men and women from Tripoli.
They strive to provide delivery services in a professional and timely manner and in all circumstances, from Monday to Friday, 11 am till 3 pm, catering to businesses, organizations, companies, and also online shops based in Tripoli.
Wasil assured in an IG post that even during storms and winter, roads blocked and other impediments of the Lebanese daily life, “the bicycle is not affected by any of those factors. The bicycle courier can still deliver the order in all of these circumstances and without delays.”
Wasil launched its operations in November of 2021 upon receiving its first seed fund from INJAZ Lebanon, a non-profit organization aiming to help Lebanese youth gain the required skills and mindset to become future entrepreneurs and qualified professionals.
This initiative is another indication that the Lebanese are not just adapting to, and coping with the crises, but are also tapping into them to progress and evolve.
