Red Star Express Plc, one of Nigeria’s foremost logistics solutions providers, has commenced delivery of fresh groceries for its customers in major cities across Nigeria. In a recent statement from the company, it was mentioned that customers will now be able to send and receive fresh organic products ranging from fresh vegetables/crops to frozen foods (chicken, beef).
According to the company’s Group Managing Director, Dr. Sola Obabori, the service was created in response to changing consumer behavior following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We are mindful of how customers’ shopping habits have changed since the pandemic became widespread. Nowadays, most customers are purchasing products online and having these products delivered to them in their homes. To avoid the risks involved in staying in crowded places, less people will be going to the markets to buy food stuffs for their homes. The need to have these items brought to their homes has become vital; making it a challenge that we are looking to provide a solution for with this new service,” he stated.
With the Express Groceries service, deliveries are made using vehicles that are equipped with temperature-controlled storage units that ensure that groceries are preserved until they are delivered.
