UK AIL, courier, air freight and logistics company is a member of the International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) that got registered with the Courier regulatory Department just last year. The company as informed by Felix Ighavbota, its general manager at CardExpo Exhibition at the Civil Centre, Victoria Island Lagos is out to deliver fast service at affordable rate. Ighavbota disclosed that speed remains the trademark of the company and said that small volume receives equal attention as large volumes.
UK AIL having studied the local terrain, according to Ighavbota has taken adequate steps to ensure that the company has the right infrastructure and network that will address challenges in the industry.
Ighavbota reiterated that courier business is highly capital intensive and advised investors who are anxious to recoup their investment to look elsewhere instead of causing confusion and heating up the system. “Most of the investors who expect their return within a short time get disappointed and that is why some of them fold up as soon as their expectations are not met”, he said.
Ighavbota said courier industry like other businesses in Nigeria operate in a fierce environment and such development he said calls for patience in any investment in the country. He said such is partly responsible why courier business is a long term investment even as he called on the Courier Regulatory Department to intensify their attack on illegal courier operators saying that a lot of them still carry out their businesses unhindered.
Even with the Information and Communications Technology, Ighavbota disclosed that there are still other untapped areas for courier companies such as interbank transactions which are always made available for delivery through the courier
