By Staff Writer, 01 April 2024

Yango Delivery, a burgeoning logistics startup specializing in urban delivery services, has unveiled Cargo Express, a groundbreaking feature designed to streamline the transportation of oversized goods across Africa.

The introduction of Cargo Express signifies a concerted effort by the company to tackle the prevalent inefficiencies and opaque pricing structures plaguing the logistics landscape.

By integrating this feature, Yango Delivery aims to revolutionize the delivery experience for customers while fostering a more transparent and reliable ecosystem.

Available initially in key metropolises such as Accra, Abidjan, and Lusaka, Cargo Express offers customers an array of benefits, including professional mover assistance and a complimentary ten-minute window for loading and unloading.

This comprehensive service is seamlessly accessible through the Yango app's Delivery section, boasting a diverse fleet of vehicles tailored to accommodate items of varying sizes and weights.

One of the key highlights of Cargo Express is its commitment to upfront pricing transparency, ensuring that customers are only billed the exact amount indicated during the order placement process.

This transparency extends to the tracking mechanism embedded within the Yango app, allowing consumers to monitor the progress of their deliveries in real-time and receive timely notifications at each stage of the journey.

Ireoluwa Obatoki, the Head of Business Development for Africa at Yango Delivery, emphasized that the rollout of Cargo Express underscores the company's dedication to leveraging technology to enhance urban delivery services.

This innovative initiative not only unlocks new revenue streams for local logistics partners and couriers but also addresses the surging demand for reliable delivery solutions amid the escalating trend of online shopping.

"The escalating trend of online shopping underscores the need for capable delivery services for large items. Cargo Express aims to fill this gap, offering a dependable and straightforward solution," remarked Obatoki, reaffirming Yango Delivery's commitment to delivering excellence in the African delivery market.
