Lusaka, Zambia 4th April 2024 Yango Delivery, a technology company providing a platform for placing and
receiving in-city delivery orders has introduced Cargo Express, its latest offering designed to streamline the
delivery of large and bulky items across Africa. This service targets a critical need in the rapidly growing e-
commerce sector for reliable and efficient shipment of sizeable products such as furniture, garden tools, and
home appliances becoming a handy tool for SMBs in the region.
The solution is a timely response to the challenges in the current logistics ecosystem which often faces issues of
inefficiency and lack of clear pricing. Cargo Express sets itself apart by providing an easily accessible service
with clear, upfront pricing. This guarantees customers that the price they see at the time of placing their order is
precisely what they will be charged. On placing the order, a customer is kept informed on each step of the orders
execution. The status of delivery is broadcasted as push notifications as well as movement of the delivery item is
displayed on the Yango in-app map.
With the expectation of a boom in job creation within the logistics field, as highlighted by the International Labour
Organization (ILO), Yango Delivery is leveraging its advanced technology platform to empower delivery partners.
The platform equips users with tools that make their work more efficient with better route planning and a fast,
reliable navigation to ensure optimised use of time and resources ultimately leading to potential increases in
earnings and contributing to Africa’s economic progress.

Ireoluwa Obatoki, Head of Business Development for Africa at Yango Delivery, comments on the launch: “The
introduction of Cargo Express is a testament to our commitment to improving urban delivery service through
technology, supporting the local partners of logistics companies and their couriers with new opportunities for
better income, and ensuring clear and transparent pricing in the delivery market across Africa. The escalating
trend of online shopping underscores the need for capable delivery services for large items. Cargo Express aims
to fill this gap, offering a dependable and straight forward solution.”
Commenting on the development, Yango Zambia Country Manager Ms. Kabanda Chewe Yango said ‘This
development brings convenient city services to Africa and to our app, both for individuals and businesses. Now
shipping a couch will be as easy as shipping flowers to a doorstep. Yango Delivery brings transparent
standardised pricing to dispersed cargo logistics niche, thus presenting new opportunities for income for local
logistics companies and their drivers working with vans and trucks.’
The Cargo Express service expands Yango’s portfolio, adding to its existing array of services such as ride-hailing
(Yango), light package delivery by motorbike (Yango Delivery) and food delivery options (Yango Deli), providing a
comprehensive selection of daily services in one app. Cargo Express is available through the Yango app, in its
Delivery section, offering a range of vehicles suited to transport items of large size and weight. Initially launching
in major cities like Abidjan, Accra, and Lusaka, the service is set to elevate the standard for large item logistics on
the continent. Customers also enjoy the benefits of additional options of mover’s help and ten free minutes of
loading and unloading time, adding to the convenience of the service.
