What's The Best Courier Company For Shipping Within Nigeria?

Let's say I want to ship small packages (to residential addresses - no more than 3kg per package) from Lagos to other parts of Nigeria quite frequently (maybe 30 packages a week) - which courier company/service can deliver within 2 days max & is affordable but reliable?

A friend suggested EMS Speedpost Economy.

Any thoughts and/or other suggestions? Reliability to deliver within 2 days is a MUST.

Owu Gal, Good luck with everything and hopefully you are contributing in your own little/big way to making this "toilet country" become even a much better one. Well, Bye!

To everyone else, tradeways is NOT cheap. Just slightly cheaper than UPS. I cant seem to get DHL rates anyhere and the Lagos number I have keeps ringing. I'm sold on UPS anyway.

SHOWBOBO,

I have a bigger brain than you. I am most certain of that, seeing as you had to resort to insults in order to express yourself. In My experience, the more of an empty barrel the person is, the more aggressive. I am looking at you.

But the point is I am not dissing Nigeria. I lived in Nigeria before I started living here and nothing worked. Should we speak about lagos? when was the last times those of you who dont live in Victoria garden city etc, had light that was not generated by your private generator?

You send a car to Nigeria and you are missing doors, tires and all the things inside the car before you even claim the car. You claim the car and robbers will be tailing you to take the already skeleton of a car from you.

The police is just a PC way of referring to Legally authorized state banditry or armed robbery. The polititcians are all drug lords who use assassins to off their opponents yet they are the biggest contributors to churches and mosques.

How dare you insult me Show Bobo, I look at Nigeria and see a country so weretched that I can not even think of it as the world's toilet, because that would be an insult to toilets.

The only thing I have hope in, is in the people. even as corrupt as many Nigerians are. I still hope People will change.

dont dare insult my intelligence again.

When I was in Secondary school My parents sent me a birthday card from abroad and I didnt receive it for a year and a half.

I know Nigeria and nothing works.

UPS is probably the most reliable, You are able to electonically track your shipment all the way and they have reasonable prices for the service provided.

Strange but true, EMS is the best within Nigeria when you talk about courier services. I have tried DHL, FedEx and UPS. When your shipping to big cities like Abuja, Port Harcourt the DHL and co are effective but cities like Lokoja, Benin, Auchi (from experience ooo), they are not effective.

I have heard about the EMS Speedpost delivery systems, but I'm not sure if they are reliable. DHL is good but very expensive.

@ Poster

There are many courier companies in Nigeria. Some are registered while others are not. The Luxury Bus Companies also offer parcel and goods delivery services. It will be very hard to point out the best courier company in Nigeria. Some of the well established Courier companies in Nigeria sometimes lose parcels and have their own issues. Conduct an online search and call them up for their locations and prices. Cheers.

since it is within nigeria, just go to one of the parks, meet the pple in charge of parcel handling, if there is any vehicle going on night journey, d parcel will be deliverd the following day i mean within 24hrs and that is if there is some1 on ground to receive it at the park.

courier- i think Ifex is okay.
