Our #BellaNaijaMCM today Kabir Shagaya is closing that gap with his business Zippy Logistics, a company which provides “high quality services in the areas of procurement, logistics and warehousing to small and medium scale markets in Nigeria.”
With over 12o,000 customers, Zippy Logistics has delivered more than 186,000 packages across Nigeria and Kabir’s business mantra is simple: “You are only as rich as whose problems you are solving”.
Prior to founding Zippy Logistics, Kabir had worked in management consulting, oil and gas, real estate, and environmental management.
He was the Lagos city director for C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, a network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change. C40 supports cities to collaborate effectively, share knowledge and drive meaningful, measurable and sustainable action on climate change.
His varied experiences include working on DFID funded projects, expertise in long-term strategic planning, building and selling a successful company in the Nigerian downstream Oil & Gas sector.
Kabir’s proficiency in relationship management enabled him excel as one of the youngest C40 Cities directors. As a result many international organisations looking to operate in Lagos have found Kabir Shagaya’s competencies as well as his contact database invaluable to facilitating their operations and transition into the Nigerian market.
Apart from providing logistics and haulage services, Kabir is also a logistics consultant, drawing from his years of experience in the industry, working with various clients.
