Yudala builds largest warehouses to enhance logistics
Yudala, pioneer composite e-commerce outfit, has invested in a trio of 220,660 square feet warehouse space located within the regional hubs of Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt, in a bid to meet growing logistics needs and strategically structure its capacity to lead in the e-commerce sector.
The company also plans to construct similar structures in Owerri, Kano and Uyo.
Ejovi Ekakitie, head of Operations, Yudala, said that the warehouses, which will significantly boost Yudala’s inventory-taking capacity, are individually the largest warehouse structures in Africa, eclipsing the 120,000 square feet structure recently announced as the continent’s largest by a fellow e-commerce player.
“These warehouses will be fully automated with warehouse Management systems to create efficient and accurate inventory management to meet our commitment of same day delivery. We are preparing for the future explosion in the sector as our mandate is very clear – to lead,” said Ekakitie.
“Since our entry into the market late last year, we have re-defined the retail space with our landmark composite retail strategy – the first in Africa – which has shown that Nigeria indeed has a lot to offer the continent and the world at large in terms of innovation. Through our wide variety of delightful promotions and product offerings, many of which we are still unveiling, we have generated huge momentum and enjoyed massive patronage which has overwhelmed our warehousing capabilities.
