Tunde Kehinde and Ercin Eksin are the co-founders of Africa Courier Express (A.C.E.), an African indigenous logistics and courier services firm. A 2-year old startup that, judging from reports, is poised to disrupt the logistics scene in West Africa.
The startup offers same day and next day delivery of goods within Lagos (72 hours across Nigeria), pay-on delivery services and real-time tracking of packages. The company also serves online and offline retail companies, healthcare companies and banks across Nigeria.
In recent months, A.C.E. has been able to get funding from Interswitch and Africa Angels Network in the range of USD2.6 million for its expansion into West Africa.
The startup is obviously on a roll without any signs of letting up. Perhaps you’d like to know what it is about the startup that drives such confidence from investors. Or what next after “conquering” Nigeria? I’m curious as well. So, let’s make a date.
On Thursday, 27th August, we’re doing an AMA with the A.C.E. guys and everyone is invited. Tell Siri to mark it on your calendar. Prep your questions. Hit the Radar by 4pm.
