An online shop, Jumia’s marketplace for restaurants, said it has launched a late-night delivery service to enable customers order food up until midnight.
Managing Director of Jumia’s marketplace, Mr Guy Futi who disclosed this in Lagos recently said they have introduced the late-night delivery service to accommodate customers who order food at night.
He noted that the late night delivery combined with initiatives like greater customer accessibility, more payment options, more locations, lunchtime deals, seasonal deals and new related products (Jumia Party) has led to over 120 per cent increase in the volume of their orders in Jumia.
Speaking on efforts to ensure quick delivery of foods ordered on the platform, Futi said: “We have made it possible for orders to be picked up by the rider closest to a restaurant’s location. With this, we can deliver orders to the customer’s doorstep within 40 minutes
Also speaking, the Head of Marketing and Vendor Success for the Marketplace, Chioma Odimegwu, promised that operational efficiency will be an integral part of the company’s focus this 2019.
