Kenya’s leading e-commerce platform Jumia on Monday unveiled a new integrated warehouse and logistics network facility in Nairobi.

The new facility seeks to enhance Jumia’s logistics operations by improving on storage to upscale its warehouse operations and better management due to service convergence.

The 11,000 square meters warehouse and network facility is located along Mombasa road and leverages the Nairobi Expressway and proximity to the Nairobi CBD for convenience.

“The new integrated facility has enabled us to converge our multiple warehouses and network operations under one roof. This will help us to improve our fulfillment operations to be more efficient and scalable thus taking care of our future needs as the business continues to grow. We shall be able to offer more products across different categories and deliver them faster to our consumers,” said Jumia Kenya CEO Juan Seco.


The e-commerce firm’s new integrated facility is seeking to transform the operations of Jumia Express, a “Fulfilled by Jumia” service where sellers store their inventory in Jumia warehouses for faster delivery (next-day delivery for Nairobi and surrounding areas).

According to Jumia, this also ensures there is no out-of-stock cancellations, and there is the highest standards of quality storage allowing consolidation of items from multiple sellers.

With this, Jumia seeks to eliminate first-mile transportation between warehouses and sorting centers resulting in reduced carbon emissions during operations in logistics.

“The convergence of our operations has helped us to reduce up to 15 truck trips per day enabling us to reduce carbon emissions significantly. We will continue to look for opportunities to contribute positively to the environment,” said Jumia Services Country Manager Ankur Agarwal.

Jumia's logistics services arm is available to external clients who are not listed on Jumia and wish to leverage its network, technology, and expertise for last-mile and line haul deliveries.
