E-commerce brand, Konga, is set to unveil a revolutionary new solution, Konga Bulk, that represents the new normal for forward-thinking businesses and consumers in the Nigerian corporate space.
According to the company, the latest innovation is set to go live coming Monday.
It noted that through the initiative, manufacturers, distributors, resellers as well as Small and Medium Enterprises, SMEs, will have an opportunity to take advantage of Konga’s world class assets.
It stated that the assets include its regional warehouses, smart offices, cutting-edge technology, advanced logistics capabilities through an internally-owned subsidiary, Kxpress and its Central Bank of Nigeria-licensed payment platform known as KongaPay.
Also, it noted that this is in addition to leveraging it’s e-Commerce engine and marketing expertise in bringing their products and services to the consciousness of millions of Nigerians nationwide.
By allocating physical office and warehouse spaces to partner businesses and placing its many other cutting-edge assets at their disposal, Konga said it is ushering many into the new normal by bringing succour to corporate entities, many of whom have been encumbered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
It said: “Konga Bulk will play a very important role, bridging the gap to genuine products and services between manufacturers, distributors, resellers, bulk buyers and consumers. Resellers and other bulk buyers can also take advantage of best prices available for genuine products exclusively through Konga Bulk,” it said.
The company Vice President, Strategic Business, Kalu Johnson, said businesses who sign up on Konga Bulk have a lot to gain.
‘‘Konga Bulk is a very ambitious project which we have positioned as the new normal. It is a unique opportunity for manufacturers to take advantage of the huge assets and real estate, both physical and virtual, available at Konga.
‘‘We have invested significantly and strategically in various areas of our operations. Today, Konga owns arguably the largest single warehouse space in Lagos in addition to other similar massive infrastructure in other parts of the country such as Onitsha, Port Harcourt, Uyo, Abuja, Owerri and other locations.
‘‘As a manufacturer, distributor or business owner signed up on Konga Bulk, you no longer have to worry about owning your own office or warehouse space. Nor do you have to bother about the heavy investment in logistics, delivery, payment solution, technology, marketing or activations. You can rely on Konga’s world class competencies and assets in these areas.
‘‘Businesses must find a way to rebound from the difficulties occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic. Konga Bulk, which is focused on ushering in the new normal, is one of the innovations we have come up with to provide a way out,’’ he concluded.
