Kwik has officially launched its innovative and award-winning just-in-time delivery services to merchants, entrepreneurs, businesses, government agencies, and social vendors in Ibadan and promises delivery in under 60 minutes.

Dubbed Africa’s largest village, Ibadan is one of the fastest-growing urban areas in Nigeria and a key commercial city that is seeing increased businesses as most companies find new markets away from Lagos.

One of the downsides to this rapid development is the increasing difficulties in moving goods around the city and Kwik aims to play a significant role in solving this problem by delivering parcels from businesses to customers in under 60 minutes.

This was disclosed by the company’s founder and chief executive officer (CEO), Mr Romain Poirot-Lellig, who explained that Kwik aims to feature over 500 partner vehicles located in Ibadan on its platform in the next 12 months.

“The Lagos-Ibadan corridor is fast becoming the most dynamic industrial and commercial hub of West Africa thanks to improving infrastructure, unparalleled market depth, and attractive local government policies.

“Kwik’s role is to ensure that all the moving parts can circulate effectively,” he explained.

In addition to its award-winning delivery service, Kwik is also making available in Ibadan its KwikStore feature, an innovative, free-to-use online storefront tool that helps merchants automate their online sales and manage their inventory.

Kwik also noted that setting up an online store now takes 5 minutes.

Adding her input, Yinka Olayanju, Kwik’s Chief Operations Officer said, “E-commerce activities in Nigeria have continued to grow at a steady pace since 2015. More than 80 per cent of Nigerians prefer to shop online from the comfort of their homes and have these products delivered to their doorsteps.

“With its isothermal bags, Kwik will ensure that all kinds of products arrive in mint condition.”

She added that “This rising trend in online activities has led to a steep increase in public spending as well as all-round economic growth, both of which require logistics support of the kind that Kwik Delivery is best-equipped to provide”.

Launched in 2019, Kwik has continued to evolve with new innovations, providing digital and logistics solutions to African B2B merchants and e-commerce social vendors in the fields of delivery, fulfilment, and payment.

The Kwik platform is currently open to merchants and businesses operating all over Nigeria, with last-mile delivery available in Lagos State, Ogun State, Abuja FCT, and now Ibadan city of Oyo State.
