As a result of the stress that comes with parcel delivery, Nigerians have resorted to the use of courier and haulage services offered by transport companies. In times past, The Nigerian Postal Services (NIPOST) was the sole provider of delivery services. However, they began to show unprofessionalism and private transport, as well as parcel delivery companies, saw this as an opportunity to invest in.

Eventually, when NIPOST became non-existent, these private transport companies and parcel delivery companies provided solutions to the eminent needs of individuals by rendering delivery services that help individuals post their goods to other locations. These companies have set up courier/ haulage companies that operate within and outside Nigeria.

Many Nigerians might still be wondering if Nigeria still has reliable courier services. The answer is yes, and transport companies have joined the league of providers of Courier and Haulage Services in Nigeria. This is why we compiled a list of Transport companies in Nigeria that offer reliable courier services.
