SmartParcel, Nigeria and Africa first innovative logistics parcel solution provider has begun deployment across strategic locations in Lagos and across Nigeria.
The Co-founder/COO of the company, Benjamin Adeyemo spoke during the opening of the Lagos Island Smart Locker locations at Mandilas Building and Andora Best Shopper Mart on Broad Street.
According to him: “Businesses and individuals on the Island and across Nigeria now have a new, easy to use, and convenient delivery service powered by smart and innovative technology.”
Adeyemo noted that the easy-to-use solution aims to solve logistics and delivery challenges by creating seamless, smart lockers positioned in strategic locations where users can send and receive items meant for them.
“The first step is to download the SmartParcel app on Google PlayStore or Apple store. Sign up to get your unique Locker code. The depositor will then use the code to deposit his/her item in the Locker. SmartParcel will then assign a trusted rider to pick up and deliver the item at the recipient closest or preferred SmartParcel collection centre.
“The recipient gets an instant notification when after the rider drops the parcel at the SmartParcl Locker. The depositor also gets an alert after the parcel is collected by the recipient. Adeyemo further said that the businesses on Lagos Island will enjoy a maximum of 12 hours delivery circle,” he added.
Speaking at the launch, a business owner, Aisha, who uses the service said, she discovered “I discovered SmartParcel at VGC. I downloaded the app “Smartparcelng” and I was signed to the service within minutes. I contacted my client and told him about the SmartParcel locker which coincidentally happened to be very close to his house and he was able to retrieve his item easily just by using the code.”
SmartParcel currently has location partnership with NIPOST that allows this innovative service to be enjoyed by all Nigerians across the 774 local government areas of the country.
