FT EFL 3PL gives Quickee.lk mega boost

EFL 3PL marked its foray into e-commerce by taking over the hyper-local delivery company, Quickee.lk, from its parent group Expolanka PLC, a leading conglomerate with interests in Logistics, Leisure and Investments.

EFL 3PL’s strategic management of Quickee.lk reflects greater synergies between the two companies and its envisioning of a new business model for Quickee.lk which is better aligned to EFL’s dynamic 3PL capabilities since it is equipped with a fulfilment centre within Colombo to further enhance speed and efficiency in service. 

Set up in 2013, Quickee.lk commenced its operations delivering snacks and then slowly progressed to adding restaurants and thereafter the B2B business and captured a strong customer database of organic consumers located within central Colombo. In 2019 it was taken over by Expolanka Holdings PLC. 

EFL 3PL’s expertise will cement Quickee.lk’s leadership at the forefront of a convenience-led retail revolution in Sri Lanka. 

Commenting on the milestone, EFL 3PL and Quickee.lk Chief Growth Officer Leroy Ebert said: “As an agile 3PL, there is a lot that we can bring to the table as well as a lot that 3PL can learn from the e-commerce supply chain model. Since speed is the new currency, Quickee.lk will help us enhance our service offerings to the existing and potential 3PL customers, making us the only 3PL to own and run an e-commerce marketplace in Sri Lanka.”

Quickee.lk Founder and Manager Operations Mariam Moosa added: “The infrastructure that EFL 3PL has is unparalleled. Quickee.lk can enhance its service offering to discerning clients requiring quality service in a jiffy. Having a professional team backing Quickee.lk will contribute to enhancing the client experience and uplift the industry as a whole to the next level.”
