The company provides consulting and products. Customers can either provide their own trucks for products, or the company will deliver for a fee. Our standard average delivery fee is N15, 000 within Abuja with maximum related expenses of N8,000. The only product costs will be associated with production. Our company trucks can’t handle all deliveries, so our trucking is subcontracted to independent trucking companies.
In addition, we plan to provide SX grade asphalt.
The market for asphalt, gravel and gravel-related products has grown at a steady rate for the past seven years, and shows no signs of abating. There are trends toward both more institutional and private road development and more private end-user interest in quality and customer service. The market in construction products has grown at 12% per year for the past three years, and is projected to increase. More important is the increased need for road-related products. With an almost 45% population increase in Abuja in the last 10 years, it is estimated that over 40% of existing country roads will require maintenance in the next four years while 35% of roads are under construction. Likewise the massive building structures being erected in this region on monthly basis are a trigger for investors in this field.
The terrain of our business area is a region where “Word-of-Mouth” endorsements are unusually important. Most private end-user customers seem to choose their provider based on quick delivery, friendliness and customer service. Business and construction-related users choose based on the establishment of a mutually beneficial and trustworthy relationship.
