Logistics firm clocks 30, consolidates growth with tech

On the occasion of its clocking 30 years of successfully doing business in Nigeria, logistics company, Red Star Express, has affirmed its readiness to scale on technology to advance its operations.

Speaking at an Executive Media Round Table recently, the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Red Star Express Plc, Mr. Auwalu Babura, stated that the timing was right for the firm to embrace technology in solidifying its authority as an industry leader within the courier and logistics sector and further expand its market share.

Despite its international interests, Red Star is not about to let loose its expansion focus in Nigeria, where it currently has about 166 offices, over 1,600 vehicles, a fleet of trucks, bikes, and warehouses.

As part of its strategic rapid expansion, Red Star is also scheduled to soon unveil her world-class warehouse at the international airport in Lagos and a Vehicle Service Centre on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway corridor to take care of its large fleet.

Babura attributed the company’s remarkable success to her highly skilled members of staff. The Managing Director said, “In the last 30 years, Red Star Express has achieved several milestones, which includes a sustainable business partnership with FedEx since 1994.”

In his speech, the Executive Director, Sales & Marketing, Charles Ejekam, provided highlights of scheduled activities to mark the anniversary, which would culminate on October 12, 2022, with a public lecture and hosting of key stakeholders

He restated that “aside from the resilience of its people, Red Star’s remarkable strides are attributable to its futuristic approach, strategic planning, agile management style and bold investments in the future.”

“We will continue to match in this direction in the long-term interest of our customers and all relevant communities and stakeholders.”
