Nigeria’s pioneer e-logistics technology company, Funnel Logistics Technologies Limited, has launched its electronic courier aggregation platform known as Funnel.
The platform is an electronic facilitator for efficient and seamless request/fulfilment of deliveries through the best courier operators across Nigeria.
The Funnel technology platform brings together customers in need of courier services and a diverse range of courier service operators at very competitive rates.
Subscribers on the Funnel platform can request to have their parcels picked-up and delivered by their preferred courier services at highly discounted rates.
Chief Executive Officer of Funnel Logistics Technologies Ltd, Mr Tunde Oloyede, while speaking at the launch, said, “We are excited to be launching this pioneer service in Nigeria.”
According to him, “The Funnel platform provides innovative solutions to ease Nigerians’ everyday last-mile logistics pain points. At Funnel, our mission is to be the primary electronic facilitator for efficient request/fulfilment of deliveries across Africa.”
Who can use Funnel?
It was stated by the company that the Funnel technology platform can be used by retailers, e-commerce platforms and their customers. Social media retailers can initiate delivery requests from within their chats with customers; and customers of e-Commerce platforms can now choose and pay for their preferred delivery service during checkout. Best of all, anyone can request a pick-up and delivery to any part of Nigeria from their mobile phone/PC without placing a single call/message. Every step from the initiation of the request, to follow up, tracking deliveries and receipt of parcels, will all be done within our apps.
Mr Oloyede further explained that users on the Funnel platform have a range of courier service providers to choose from, adding that, “We have partnered with the most reliable courier companies (DHL, FedEx, Smartpost, Rapiid, EMS, and many others), and negotiated highly discounted rates with them, to ensure that our users get the best value for their money”.
With the launch of Funnel into the Nigeria market, it is expected that Nigerians will be able to move their parcels, documents, and goods from one point to the other with significantly less hassle. All they need do is go to Funnel.ng to get started.
How to use Funnel
Once registration is completed, making a request or integrating businesses onto the Funnel platform takes just four simple steps which can be completed in less than 2 minutes.
The Funnel apps are easy to use for subscribers of all types; including individuals, businesses, e-Commerce platforms, online stores, warehouses and retailers. It has an intuitive dashboard that allows customers to track orders, provide businesses with various reports that can be used for decision making and planning, gives warehouses the flexibility to print their shipping labels easily.
“A critical bit of our model is to provide as many easy to use tools as possible (apps, plugins, APIs) that offer our potential users and clientele efficient and seamless access to delivery services from our courier partners. So, logistics is made easy for both the customer who is requesting a service and the services provider,” Mr Oloyede concluded.
