CourierPlus Services Limited, a wholly owned Nigerian Logistics Company has entered into a strategic franchise partnership with Priority Express Services (PES) to deliver courier and logistics services to corporate organisations, government agencies and individuals in Ghana.
Operating out of Accra, Ghana’s capital, both companies will collaborate to provide efficient services within one of Africa’s booming economies.
Adetutu Sanni, Head, CourierPlus International, while commenting on the new business relationship between CourierPlus and PES, said the partnership is in line with the expansion drive across selected African countries. “Our ultimate goal is creating value in Africa for Africans; and it will enable the good people of Ghana enjoy the very best of courier and logistics services,” she stated.
Wale Adisa, managing director, CourierPlus in a statement said Nigeria and Ghana share similarities in business, politics, and sports.
“By partnering with Priority Express Services, CourierPlus will further be able to better satisfy our customers in Nigeria doing significant business in Ghana. It will ensure excellent courier and logistics services, which we are already known for in other markets, reach the Ghanaian business community, helping to provide more jobs, create more wealth and contribute to the growing economy,” said Adisa.
Gabriel Okonkwo, vice-president /CEO Superflux Group, the parent company of CourierPlus, while highlighting the importance of the partnership to CourierPlus business model and vision, said the deal indicates CourierPlus willingness to be a big player in Africa.
“This is coming less than a year after the grand opening of a CourierPlus subsidiary in Kenya. There is an ever present need for African businesses to begin to partake actively in creating value within the continent that will grow our individual economies and reduce external reliance. Partnerships like this go a long way in bringing this vision to fruition,” stated Okonkwo.
CourierPlus has been providing cutting edge courier services, freight, international deliveries, customs solutions and E-commerce delivery both local and international, since 2009.
However, talks for the partnership with Priority Express Services started with a working arrangement in 2016.
