In 2020, ShaQ Express was born from a simple yet ambitious vision: to bring convenience and innovation to Ghana’s e-commerce and logistics landscape. With just four motorbikes, a handful of enthusiastic team members, and a burning desire to revolutionize the industry, we set out on our journey. Today, we stand as a testament to the power of bootstrapping, innovation, and sheer determination, evolving into a super app redefining digital convenience.
Our modest beginnings were characterized by the hustle and bustle of four motorbikes crisscrossing the city, delivering packages, and facilitating commerce. Every delivery, every satisfied customer added a brick to the foundation of what was to become a digital revolution. While our resources were limited, our resolve was not. We had a dream to connect people, simplify lives, and create a greener, more sustainable future.
Transitioning to electric motorbikes was a leap towards sustainability, reducing our carbon footprint and showing our commitment to an eco-friendly Ghana. This switch marked a significant milestone in our journey, reinforcing the alignment of our operations with our values.
Simultaneously, we sought to bridge the gap between vendors and customers, creating a connected digital experience. Through countless hours of brainstorming, coding, testing, and refining, our super app began to take shape. The development of the app was fueled by feedback from our users, the experiences from our delivery network, and insights from our vendor partners.
Our super app, today, represents a single digital platform that serves as a marketplace for vendors, a convenient shopping hub for customers, and a delivery network that respects the environment. From retail stores, online pharmacies, virtual clinics, and home services to food outlets, our platform offers a wide array of services, delivering an unparalleled level of convenience to our users.
The journey from four motorbikes to a super app has not been easy, but it has been incredibly rewarding. We’ve built relationships, learned from our experiences, and continually adapted to better serve our customers and partners. Bootstrapping our way to becoming a tech company in Ghana, we have proven that a strong vision, unyielding determination, and a focus on customer experience can move mountains – or in our case, transform four motorbikes into a super app!
We owe our success to our incredible team, our loyal customers, and our dedicated vendor partners. Each one of you has contributed to our story, and we are grateful for your support.
As we move forward, we pledge to remain true to our roots – to value every customer, to appreciate every partner, and to respect the environment. We remain committed to simplifying lives.
So, here’s to the journey so far, and here’s to the exciting road that lies ahead! Join us as we continue to redefine e-commerce in Ghana, innovating and growing together, from four motorbikes to a super app and beyond.
