Delivering in a Digital Era: How Technology is Reshaping Logistics Services in Nigeria
Passionate about tech.  Jul 11


The logistics industry in Nigeria is undergoing a major transformation, thanks to the increasing adoption of technology. In the past, logistics was a relatively manual process, with businesses relying on paper records and offline systems to track shipments. However, the rise of digital technology is changing all that.

Benefits of using technology in logistics

The use of technology in the logistics industry is likely to continue to grow in Nigeria. And as technology continues to develop, we will see even more innovation in the logistics industry. This will lead to more efficient, transparent, and accessible logistics services.  Here are some of the benefits of using technology in logistics:

  • Real-time tracking: With real-time tracking, businesses can see exactly where their packages are at all times. This information can be used to optimize delivery routes and ensure that shipments arrive on time. Logistics companies can save time and money by using technology to track deliveries and optimize routes. Real-time technology is making logistics more transparent by allowing customers to track their deliveries in real-time. This gives customers peace of mind, knowing where their goods are and when they will arrive
  • Automated data entry: Automated data entry systems can help reduce errors and improve the speed of data processing. This can free up staff to focus on other tasks, such as customer service.
  • Cloud-based logistics software: Cloud-based logistics software allows businesses to access their logistics data anywhere. This can be helpful for businesses with multiple locations or those needing to collaborate with partners.
  • Mobile apps: Technology is making logistics more accessible. By using mobile apps, logistics companies can reach a wider range of customers. Also, these mobile apps make it easier for businesses to manage logistics operations and can be used to track deliveries and communicate with customers.
