Jumia partner

Africa’s top e-commerce marketplace Jumia Ghana has partnered with modern eco-friendly mobility company Solar Taxi to provide affordable and eco-friendly delivery of online orders for its consumers. The partnership is part of Jumia’s plan to achieve a fully green footprint through the use of clean and sustainable renewable energy. The company is also working to ensure customers remain safe during the Covid-19 pandemic by offering home deliveries of food, groceries, and other essential items through the use of Solar Taxi riders.

Tolulope George-Yanwah, Jumia Ghana CEO said that the partnership between Solar Taxi Ghana Limited and Jumia was inspired by environmental safety concerns. Solar-driven vehicles and motorbikes on online deliveries safeguard the stakeholders from fuel emissions.

Mr. Jorge Appiah, the CEO of Solar Taxis Ghana Ltd described the partnership with Jumia Ghana as a way to “ eco friendly and affordable transportation to Ghanaians through its online delivery service.” In phase one, 20 solar-powered motorcycles will be used for online deliveries on Jumia with plans to scale this number to 100 by year’s end.

As the continent’s leading e-commerce platform and tech unicorn, Jumia’s marketplace is built around jumia logistics and JumiaPay. The latter facilitates payments within Jumia’s payments ecosystem.
