Delivery (or logistics) business is making impressive waves in Nigeria and other places of the world. This is because it is one business that several other businesses rely on for the distribution of items –goods, parcels, etc., –to final consumers. In particular, e-commerce is an industry that depends on courier services for the delivery of items (already ordered online) to customers.
With authoritative bodies projecting remarkable growth for the Nigerian e-commerce industry, it is highly predictable that delivery business will be positively affected in the country. If you need a better definition for the latter statement, you should like to know that sellers on Konga, Ali Express, Jumia and other popular e-commerce stores engage the services of logistics operators in delivering goods to buyers. These logistics operators are independent channels and alternatively, they are the courier companies with cargo bikes, vans or other kinds of vehicles designed for delivering items to people.
