Speaking at the launch of Simplified Corporate Logistics, in Lagos, founder and CEO Nduka Udeh remarked,
“Nigerian businesses of recent have been hit by a steep hike in the price of ordering, handling and clearing goods from overseas. What Simplified Corporate Logistics does is that; it removes the risk factor from businesses. We make it our responsibility to source for Forex to carry out transactions so our customers only pay in Naira. Then we guide them through the entire clearing process and handle the documentation on their behalf so that they reduce incurred fines and charges to the barest minimum. Our process is so efficient that we can guarantee clearance of goods within six days.
We can even source for the items our customers want from trusted manufacturers globally, and get them at the best prices – thanks to our partnership with several auction companies in the USA. Most significantly, we offer a cargo consolidation service that can save our customers up to 70per cent in freight costs. We believe that it is these cost and efficiency savings that will propel the Nigerian small and medium enterprises into the future.”
