This is as the company replaced it’s existing ‘Go Standard’ with a new delivery product, ‘Go-Faster’.
GIGL disclosed that the new service design is aimed at providing next day deliveries to and from selected cities including Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt.
Naija News understands that the GIGL’s new product launch comes months after the company’s launched its electric delivery vans to complement its zero-carbon initiative.
Incorporated in 2012, the Lagos-headquartered company offers logistics services to private end-users and merchants seeking a reliable channel to deliver goods and parcels to places around Nigeria, Ghana and the U.S.
Having rendered a series of services for its customers within the space of 10 years of establishment, GIGL is now considered a logistics giant in Nigeria reputed for its speedy, secured and affordable service.
Instrumental to leading innovations within the industry, the company leverages technology to deliver on its core values. At the centre of the company’s operations is its mobile app, GIGGO, launched in 2019, facilitating cross-border logistics services from the remotest locations.
Naija News understands that GIGL in 2020, partnered with Jet Motor Company, an African automobile manufacturer, in a corporate deal to adopt GIGL’s service centres in Nigeria as charging stations for electric vehicles.
Speaking on the company’s new development during the weekend, GIGL Product Lead, Tunde Arogundade, explained that the company is introducing the product in response to the yearning of customers, especially eCommerce merchants, for faster delivery modules.
He said: “The choice of Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt to launch was based on data of volume traffic and customer’s demand. However, the product extended to other cities within Nigeria and Accra in Ghana where customers are demanding for it.”
With ‘Go Faster,’ Arogundade noted that GIGL will “enable small and medium businesses to grow faster” as they rely on the ever-expanding GIGL network to reach their customers within and outside Nigeria.
