Shoptomydoor.com a logistics company creating profitable business opportunities for everyone in Nigeria has been awarded the “Most Reliable Logistics Company of the Year “at the annual awards by the Pan African International Magazine in Accra, Ghana.

The prestigious award
The Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director of Shoptomydoor, Nduka Udeh speaking at the 7th annual award says, “The government should leave the business of running corporations in the hands of citizens as done by China and other developed countries. He says that the small business enterprise is the future of Nigeria especially and focusing on huge capital-intensive projects are not productive. Hence, we see a collapse in industrialization not only in Nigeria, but other African countries who had long gotten independence before Hong Kong.
“In the logistics sectors, from experience the policies in place were not developed to support the small business only the large corporations.”
He advised that African countries are better managing smaller entities than large corporations and recommended the review of more policies in Nigeria, including Export to support growth and industrialization. Highlighting the challenges that are experienced in Nigeria, from the duplication of offices to the distance you have to cover to get approval, he said an exporter is left with a very short period to compete with the global market and that discourages investors wanting to do business with Nigerians. “Giving a practical example of a US based business tycoon who tried exporting yams from Nigeria, it took him three weeks to get clearance to get the items to the port and eventually yams arrived the US port rotten. With the strict laws guiding import into the US, the entire container was burnt down with the owner bearing that cost, as well as losing capital invested in that full container load,” Udeh noted.
The 2019 award is the latest recognition given to the tremendous impact Shoptomydoor.com is making on supporting SMEs in Nigeria.
