Composite online and offline retail chain, Yudala, claims to have made the first ever drone delivery in Nigeria.

As The Political Economist reports, the order in question is said to have been placed by a certain Yetunde Lawal, who happens to be a first time visitor to the Yudala.

The drone took off from Yudala’s headquarters in Lagos, hauling the product to the amazement and delight of onlookers, until it arrived its destination at Lawal’s place of work.

Drone delivery may just have come in time to jolt Nigeria into a new era of logistics, thus  leapfrogging the ubiquitous infrastructural challenges that continuously stare the country in the face. Unavailability of transport infrastructure for instance has largely contributed to traffic congestions on our road, and looks to persist.

Yudala launched in Lagos a little over four months ago, with a unique online-offline approach to eCommerce. The startup has since expanded its retail space across eight more cities in Nigeria.
