Jumia has opened its logistics arm to external clients for deliveries. The company has one of the largest logistics networks in Kenya, which it uses to support e-commerce & express Jumia Food deliveries. With today’s announcement, Jumia is effectively opening up their technology, expertise & logistics scale for the benefit of third parties. These services include Next Day delivery to all major cities, Same Day delivery in Nairobi & cash on delivery services at competitive prices.

Through this network we have access to thousands of bikes, vans & hundreds of pick up stations. This move is good news for these partners – as it will drive more volume through our network & to them.” added Chappatte.
