Nigerian company goes in pursuit of lucrative courier service in Kenya

Courier Plus hopes to give Kenyan courier services a run for their money.

Nigeria based logistics and distribution services firm Courier Plus has opened a branch in Nairobi in a move sought to fill the growing demand for logistical services.

The company has a presence in over 200 countries and offers goods in transit insurance, delivery services and packaging, as well as air, road and sea freight services.

It is planning to offer services targeting key sectors including financial, mining, manufacturing, telecoms, pharmaceutical, tea and apparel industries.

The firm expressed eagerness to work in Kenya in meeting its clients’ needs in the required timelines.

“We offer prompt and efficient deliveries, and our vast network across Kenya affords us the opportunity to pick up and deliver documents, parcels and heavy goods within stipulated timelines as agreed with our clients,” read part of the firm’s statement.

Addressing the press during the launch, Courier Plus regional head East and Central Africa Maureen Kolenyo said that Kenya’s strategic position across East and Central Africa region will enable the company offer world class services to their customers.

“Opening offices in Nairobi Kenya is quite strategic; Kenya is indeed the economic trade hub for the East and Central Africa region. Logistically, Kenya has direct flights to all the countries in East and Central Africa; therefore, setting up office in Nairobi will allow us to offer superior services to our customers across the region.”

The entry of Courier Plus in Kenya could see it provide competition to some of the leading courier services in the market such as EMS, DHL and Fargo Courier Limited.
