If you are into e-commerce, traditional commerce or do get involved in movement of goods/parcels from one part of Nigeria to the other, you will agree with me that sometimes finding the best courier company to provide such services could be difficult even more so in a city such as Lagos.
In order to ensure a quality service take the time to know about the service the company offers, measure the pros and cons of each if you have the time and base your decision on the type of materials you wish to send, the weight of those materials and the urgency attached to the need for the service as well, a validation from a customer would go a long way in helping you trust the freight forwarding service, so make enquiries and hear from the horse’s mouth.
Also remember that, as technological development has advanced, there are easier ways to make the service easier to access, so there are mobile applications that have been created to help ease shipping stress and help you track your parcel and documents on the go.
