Kwik Delivery launches 2.0 isothermal delivery bags for its bike delivery partners

NIGERIA Kwik Delivery, a logistics delivery startup, has launched better isothermal delivery bags for its bike delivery partners across Lagos.

Bigger, stronger and more resilient compared to regular delivery bags, the Kwik bag 2.0 isothermal bags are to replace the first-generation delivery bags used by Kwik Delivery bike riders since its launch in 2019. They are introduced to make deliveries much safer as well as increase carrying capacity of bikes.

The new Kwik 2.0 bags can carry up to 40kg of load as against the 25kg capacity of the previous bags. Zippers on the bag are covered with protective flaps to safe-guard delivery packages against water leaks from rainfall while in transit.

More interestingly, the bags are designed to keep the temperature (hot or cold) of parcels up to 6 hours while in transit. Meanwhile Kwik’s platform ensures parcels delivery within 2 hours of pick-up in Lagos and 1 hour in Abuja.

“Now you can send much more things with a Kwikster, be it frozen goods or a hot dish, the carrying capacity just got bigger.”

“With this new Kwik 2.0 bag, customers can move even more merchandises around Lagos with just-in time effectiveness and complete peace of mind knowing, as before, that the condition of their goods are intact irrespective of the temperature or weather,” said Yinka Olayanju, Chief Operating Officer of Kwik Delivery.

“Now you can send much more things with a Kwikster, be it frozen goods or a hot dish, the carrying capacity just got bigger.”

Since its launch in 2019, Kwik Delivery has firmly established itself as an enabler of digital transformation for merchants in Nigeria, creating strong value-added SaaS services critical to the deployment and growth of e-commerce.

In April this year, Kwik Delivery launched its Prestashop Plugin, which makes it the most integrated delivery platform with e-commerce frameworks in Africa. You can have a read Here.

The plugin allows buyers to get real-time shipping rates between merchants’ addresses and the buyers’ delivery addresses. 

This new plugin is a milestone as Kwik Delivery is now fully integrated with the “Big Four” of e-commerce frameworks: Magento, WooCommerce, Shopify and now Prestashop.

Delivery plugins are a critical technology brick in the growth of African e-commerce by allowing thousands of merchants to offer reliable, secure and efficient last-mile delivery services to their customers.

By installing the plugin, businesses no longer need to worry about on-time deliveries after-sales as Kwik handles it for them. Kwik delivers within 2 hours in Lagos and 1 hour in Abuja after pickup and will soon expand its service to new cities.
