Lagos-based delivery services provider, Kwik, has expanded operations to Ibadan with promise of prompt delivery not more than 60 minutes.

Ibadan, which is the capital and most populous city of Oyo state, is the third largest city by population in Nigeria, after Lagos and Kano, and the largest by geographical area in the country.

The city, which is the third cheapest city to live in, is a major centre for trade of food crops and is home to industries such as agro allied, food processing, health care and cosmetic, textile, tobacco processing and cigarette manufacturing, leatherwork and furniture making, among others.

Ibadan’s major economic activities are agriculture, trade, public service employment, factory work, service sector/tertiary production, and others. 

Its key commercial activities come with a downside of inefficient delivery services which Kwik wants to step in to solve.

Launched in 2019, Kwik has continued to evolve with new innovations, providing digital and logistics solutions to African B2B merchants and e-commerce social vendors in the fields of delivery, fulfilment, and payment. 

The Kwik platform is currently open to merchants and businesses operating all over Nigeria, with last-mile delivery available in Lagos State, Ogun State, Abuja FCT, and now Ibadan city of Oyo State.
