SmartParcel, Nigeria, and Africa’s first innovative logistics parcel solution provider have begun deployment across strategic locations in Lagos and across Nigeria.
Benjamin Adeyemo, the Co-Founder/COO SmartParcel during the opening of the Lagos Island Smart Locker locations at Mandilas Building and Andora Best Shopper Mart on Broad Street said, “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.
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’s closest or preferred SmartParcel collection center. 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 of delivery circle.
A business owner, Aisha, who uses the service shares her experience. “I always had terrible experiences with delivery men and dispatch companies. One of my worst experiences and the one that led me to SmartParcel was when my delivery man was supposed to deliver a package to a very valuable customer at a certain time but failed to do so. I almost lost that client. In a panic, I searched frantically for a solution and 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. I am very delighted and satisfied with this new innovation. It is so easy to use and will definitely make deliveries hassle free from now on”
Similarly, Gabriel spoke about his colleague’s experience with SmartParcel. She got a notification of a unique code on her phone that she has a package to pick up at a named SmartParcel locker. On her way home after closing from work she uses the code sent to retrieve the item.
With SmartParcelpcker solutions, users’ privacy is well protected because their details are not disclosed to everyone. Imagine the number of dispatch riders, in regular logistics service, that has your name, phone number, and home address. Users of the service are always relieved whenever they pick up items delivered to them through the secured SmartLocker closest to them, which they can pick up at their convenience.
SmartParcel currently has a location partnership with NIPOST that allows this innovative service to be enjoyed by all Nigerians across the 774 local government areas of the country.
