NIGERIA – Kwik Delivery, an on-demand delivery startup, has expanded its app-based breakthrough delivery service to 4-wheels delivery vehicles that includes vehicles such as hatchbacks, pick-ups, SUV, vans, and small trucks up to 5 tonnes.
Using the Kwik Delivery app, customers can request a delivery vehicle track their shipment in real time and benefit from many additional vehicles.
The 4-wheels vehicle can be booked for a same day delivery or for any future date and loaders can be requested as well. Kwik Delivery is vetting the vehicles and drivers and ensures consistent quality of service. It also provides goods in transit insurance.
“Many of our customers have expressed the need to use our platform to deliver large items or merchandises that do not fit in a bike’s cargo box,” explained Romain POIROT-LELLIG, founder and CEO of Kwik Delivery.
“By enlarging its platform to these new larger types of vehicles, the Kwik platform becomes the first full-stack last-mile delivery platform in Nigeria.”Romain POIROT-LELLIG – Founder and CEO, Kwik Delivery
