This on-demand e-commerce fulfillment center is slated to open in Lagos this September, aiming to cater to the burgeoning demand for flexible warehousing and fulfillment solutions.

Kwik’s journey in the e-commerce realm has been marked by significant milestones, including seed funding in 2019 and a Series A funding round of US$2 million in 2022.

The facility offers an adaptable warehousing solution that allows businesses to streamline storage and fulfillment processes.

The platform’s broader vision involves establishing multiple e-commerce fulfillment centers across key Nigerian cities, a move aimed at addressing the growing demand for flexible warehousing solutions. By seamlessly integrating fulfillment capabilities with its existing last-mile delivery service, Kwik is poised to reshape the e-commerce landscape in the region, enhancing operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.
