Lagos-based international logistics company, Circuit Atlantic and Shippyme, a shipping/logistics company have announced a merger to become Zaposta.

They made the announcement in a joint presser made available to TechCabal.

Zaposta will now combine services of the merging companies; e-commerce and logistics. Zaposta will help users create and manage their shopping and shipping services on on the same platform.

The new entity, which seem to be up already has launched a mobile and web app, Zaposta app, that allows international online shopping from Nigeria. But, though the web app is already up, the company says mobile versions will not be available until July.

“Zaposta web and mobile applications are robust and the list of features include the deployment of machine learning for a much improved and intuitive real time shipping estimate system,” Circuit Atlantic told TechCabal. “Other key features are an overhauled jejepay e-wallet system and a faster and more intuitive e-payment system.”

Circuit Atlantic had announced a new CEO couple of weeks back and also announced a mobile app, not unlike the Zaposta app that is coming with the new company.

It’s not clear what occasioned the merger, but TechCabal has reached out to the companies and will update accordingly.

The merging companies say that customers can still view the progress of existing transactions on the circuitatlantic and shippyme platforms.
