TechInAfrica – Kenya’s e-logistics startup, Lori Systems, has announced its operation expansion to Nigeria right after 10 months of piloting in the country. The piloting was done with some of Nigeria’s top cargo companies, including Flour Mills Nigeria, Honeywell Flour Mills, and Olam. The expansion marks a great opportunity for the startup to facilitate customers with its seamless operations.
Nigeria is the largest market in Africa yet still has to face challenges in logistics, including a congested port as well as a shortage of transport options. This has given Lori Systems to provide its best services that leverage innovative technology to run its operations.
Uche Ogboi, Lori’s CEO said, “Lori is at the forefront of revolutionizing cargo transport across Africa from the ground up.”
She added, “Our mission in Nigeria is to create a more efficient logistics experience for cargo owners who are burdened with the task of moving their goods across the country. We have successfully created a digital platform to enable the movement of goods through a transparent supply chain management system that is affordable, reliable and flexible.”
Lori Systems is a Kenyan-based e-logistics startup launched in 2016. Its mission is to connect cargo owners to transport in frontier markets seamlessly with its innovative technology. According to the startup, it wishes to address the issues in logistics including the high cost of goods across Africa due to the logistics costs. Lori works to eliminate the customer pain points using its new technologies as well as superior user experience.
As an e-logistics service provider, Lori provides services to clients in three main areas, including Technology, Customer Service, and Operational Excellence. To provide a value of reliability, Lori works with high-quality transporters who have an excellent track record on performance and are verified.
Lori develops advanced tech tools that allow better tracking for goods on the journey. These tech tools have cut off logistics costs while at the same time provide better end-to-end coordination with transporters.
