Winpart has announced that it has ties up with Kwik Delivery to deliver spare parts to customers in Nigeria in less than two hours. WinPart is a new aftermarket spare parts wholesaler and a division of CFAO Automotive that specializes in export of automotive parts to Africa. CFAO is a subsidiary of Japan based TTC Group and maintains a direct presence in 36 African countries.
Commenting on the collaboration, Olivier Buisson, General Manager, Winpart explained that the company’s goal is to make quality auto parts from the Original Equipment (OEMs) Manufacturers like Denso, Bosch, Valeo, Philips, C-works, Riken, and several others available to motorists.
Just like in the UAE, the heavy circulation of fake automotive spare parts in the Nigerian market has led to numerous road accidents and several fatalities. Winpart’s plan is to change this scenario.
Buisson added, “As we commence operation in Nigeria, we need a flexible, reliable and last-mile logistics partner that can adapt to the needs of each customer while delivering in less than two hours upon pick up of parcel. Kwik ticks all the right boxes and we are happy that this partnership will work for our customers”.
Romain Poirot-Lellig, Founder & CEO of Africa Delivery Technologies, the company that runs the Kwik platform said that in Nigeria as is the case in other markets, auto spare parts can be considered to be fast-moving consumer goods. As an outcome of the collaboration with Kwik, Winpart will be able to supply petrol stations with their orders within 2-hours.
Poirot-Lellig concluded, “The goal is to support Winpart and their customers grow their business while managing their inventory with quasi just-in-time leanness.”
Winpart supplies the Total petrol pump network and other suppliers in Nigeria with automotive spare parts while Kwik Delivery is a delivery platform that is developed and operated by the French-Nigerian company Africa Delivery Technologies.
