Kwik Delivery, an on-demand delivery platform and Winpart, a subsidiary of CFAO Motors, majoring in spare parts dealership have announced a partnership to ensure smooth, on-demand and flexible last-mile delivery of light auto spare parts to customers in Nigeria in two hours.
Commenting on the partnership, Olivier Buisson, general manager, Winpart said, “The goal of Winpart, a division of CFAO Motors with a spread in several other African countries is to make available to motorists, quality auto parts from the Original Equipment (OEMs) Manufacturers like Denso, Bosch, Valeo, Philips, C-works, Riken, and a host of others. The heavy circulation of fake automotive spare parts in the Nigerian market has not only accounted for a great number of road accidents but also has led to the loss of lives and resources. We are changing this narrative.”
He noted that as the firm began operation in Nigeria, it needed a flexible, reliable and last-mile logistics partner that could adapt to the needs of each customer while delivering in less than two hours upon pick up of parcel.
“Kwik ticks all the right boxes and we are happy that this partnership will work for our customers,” he added.
He said in Nigeria as in anywhere else, auto spare parts are fast-moving consumer goods.
“Thanks to Kwik, Winpart will be able to supply gas filling stations with their orders within two hours. The goal is to support Winpart and their customers grow their business while managing their inventory with quasi just-in-time leanness,” said Romain Poirot-Lellig, founder & CEO. Africa Delivery Technologies, who operates the Kwik platform.
Winpart provides auto spare parts to the Total gas station network in Nigeria, among others.
Kwik Delivery is an on-demand delivery platform focusing on the rich and diverse B2B and B2B2C market. It is developed and operated by French-Nigerian company Africa Delivery Technologies, while a division of CFAO Automotive, WinPart is the new aftermarket spare parts wholesaler exclusively dedicated to export to Africa.
