A French startup Africa Delivery Technologies is aiming to dominate last-mile delivery services in Nigeria Through its Kwik app.
Kwik aims to become the first platform for last-mile delivery in urban areas in Nigeria before extending its scope to neighboring countries.
Founder & CEO of Africa Delivery Technologies and developer of the Kwik app, Romain POIROT-LELLIG, explained that the company is targeting 100,000 deliveries per day in three cities before 2021”.
The Kwik app comes with an integrated geolocation system and offers an efficient transportation service for small packages (up to 25kg) or documents, following the same model as Go-Jek, Uber or Taxify.
In Nigeria, Kwik’s value proposition is to ensure the fast, reliable and efficient delivery of a package or envelope in Lagos, Nigeria’s business capital.
According to a statement released by the startup:
“Currently, Kwik’s competitors offer a service that takes 12 hours and costs between 2,000 and 3,000 nairas (4-8 euros) per delivery from Lagos to Lagos. Kwik promises to offer a service of higher added value within 2 hours and for a third of the price, with integrated geolocation and proof of a delivery system that offers the highest degree of security available on the market”.
