These "sacred forests" are believed to be inhabited and protected by gods, totem animals or ancestors. Local communities have their own rules prohibiting reckless harvesting of timber and game, which have protected the sacred forests over many generations. By Michele Francis

    Kwik Delivery is a business-to-business delivery platform focusing on providing reliable delivery services inside large Nigerian cities by connecting riders and customers. The service currently covers Lagos and Abuja.

    "Many of our customers have expressed the need to use our platform to deliver large items or merchandises that do not fit in a bike’s cargo box," explains Romain Poirot-Lellig, founder and CEO of Kwik Delivery. "By enlarging its platform to these new larger types of vehicles, the Kwik platform becomes the first full-stack last-mile delivery platform in Nigeria."

    By using the Kwik Delivery app, customers can request a delivery vehicle to track their shipment in real-time and benefit from many additional vehicles. The 4-wheels vehicle can be booked for same-day delivery or for any future date and loaders can be requested as well.

    The company is also vetting the vehicles and drivers, ensuring quality of service and goods in transit insurance.

    The Kwik Delivery app is available on iOS and Android.
