At pine, our products has always been designed around the safety of the money and goods of our users. In a question and answer session with Thisday correspondent, I spoke extensively on what Pine is all about and the efforts we are putting to make the haulage industry in Nigeria a safe zone.
The Chief Executive Officer of Pine, Mr. Nwokoro Kaodilichukwu, in this interview speaks on the need for efficient framework, supported by technology to enhance Nigeria’s logistics sector. Nosa Alekhuogie brings the excerpts:
What is Pine all about and what is its vision?
Pine is a technology driven logistics platform that connects shippers to haulage companies, truck and van drivers, be an individual, large corporation or small and medium enterprises. The platform is open to everybody as it makes the process easy. All you have to do is request for a particular type of truck/van from the list of presets and the platform will handle your payment and goods in Transit Insurance and the good thing is that you can do it from anywhere, at any time.
We also have a fleet management solution called Pine Carrier (available free on Android and iOS) where truck owners can effectively manage their fleet and drivers and earn money directly. You don’t need to have other people manage your trucks for you, you get to see available detailed orders yourself, accept and assign it to your drivers, they follow up and payments are made directly into your account. You can also check real time location as the trip(s) is ongoing. You can add as many drivers and trucks as possible. Pine Carrier gives you control over your assets and earnings. We want to spur economic activities by providing a one stop solution to handle the movement of goods across the country and beyond, we also want to empower people by providing avenues to earn and cater for themselves.
