A player in the courier and logistic industry, CFL Global Express Limited, has announced the acquisition of the franchise of Skynet Worldwide Express in Nigeria.
Skynet is one of the largest independently owned courier and express delivery networks in the world, whose system covers over 209 countries.
A statement signed by the Managing Director, CFL Global, Mr. Tayo Ogundare, said that the franchise takeover was a major milestone on the part of the company, as Skynet combined efficiency, reliability and high performance with cost effectiveness.
According to him, the company has the philosophy of providing creative solutions to logistic needs at a pocket friendly cost, thereby drastically reducing logistics cost and high rates being charged by its competitors.
He said, “SkyNet has been a major player in the global express delivery industry since 1972, as it has strengthened its operations in the southern and North Africa. However, with this acquisition, Nigerian business community and individuals are set for a whole new shipping experience.
“Delivery of mails and parcels to and from all over the world has become very easy, simple and cheap; Nigerian businesses now truly have a choice as they do not need to pay over-bloated logistics bills anymore.”
He added that as a technologically-driven network, SkyNet had established a high reputation in global e-commerce, adding that Nigerians could now shop online with ease from anywhere in the world and get their goods delivered without stress.
The statement added that CFL, as the SkyNet trademark owner in Nigeria, had the responsibility to develop the brand competitively in the country and even in the West African sub-region.
“In effect, CFL Global Express will be trading as SkyNet Worldwide Express henceforth. We will combine the global strength of SkyNet with the local knowledge and strength of the CFL to give Nigeria businesses and individuals the promised fresh shipping experience,” Ogundare said.
