Jumia has partnered with Ghana Post to increase its market presence in Ghana.
Jumia will be supported by Ghana Post to deliver packages to customers via expedient and efficient courier services.
“Our ultimate goal is to make e-commerce more accessible to Ghanaians and bring eCommerce closer to consumers. This is in conjunction with the network of branches that the Ghana Post has across the country.
“Jumia is a seasoned company in e-commerce and logistics. Joining forces with a well-structured company such as Ghana Post further expands the horizon,” stated Tolulope Georg-Yanwah CEO of Jumia Ghana.
The new agreement is beneficial to consumers because it lowers shipping costs, ensures faster delivery of orders from overseas, and increases the level of customer service. This will increase consumer confidence and boost participation in the eCommerce market.
Kwaku Tabi Amponsah, Deputy Managing Director, Ghana Post, stated that “our partnership with Jumia is a positive step forward to meet the online shopping needs for Ghanaians.” We are well-positioned to provide secure, fast delivery services for all e-shoppers, thanks to our network of over 300 branches and an excellent track and trace system.
“When COVID-19 impacted our world, Ghana Post’s innovation and resilience in serving communities around the world showed that innovation is not an adjunct to recovery, but rather a driving force behind it. Millions of people depend on postal services.”
Jumia’s cross-border shipments will be faster served by the partnership. Ghana Post has over 360 post offices across the country. This partnership supports Jumia customers through a partnership that offers additional ways for rural consumers and all other areas to collect their orders quicker and more conveniently via the Jumia mobile app and website.
