MAX.ng is one of the leading mobility players in the Nigerian and African mobility tech space. Since its inception, it has strived to combine its resources towards moving people and goods within Africa easily, efficiently and safely. But not without some challenges. First was the Lagos okada ban in the first quarter of 2020. Followed by the coronavirus pandemic that shook the world. Notwithstanding, the startup was able to accelerate its presence in cities where they were already available, especially Ibadan, Kano, and Akure. It also powered the building of eco-friendly high electric performance vehicles.
Max.ng was co-founded by CEO Adetayo Bamiduro and Chinedu Azodoh in 2015 to provide solutions to challenges around mobility. The startup serves as a last-mile delivery service option (MAX Now) and a ride-hailing service (MAX Go) via its MAX app available on both the Ios app store and Google Play Store. Since then it has empowered over 18000 drivers and covered over 150 million kilometres with over 17 million trips. In addition, it has saved over 52 metric tons of CO2 emissions and operates in 7 cities.
Max.NG has also built other technologies which include:
- Digital market links that connect drivers to commuters in real-time, as well as anyone needing access to transportation and delivery.
- A technology that captures data on vehicles or manages these vehicles.
- A payment gateway that enables the flow of money from the start-up’s customers to their drivers, and even to the start-up’s financing partners.
- Electric motorcycles are tailored to fit the Nigerian and African roads.
Max.ng has recently exceeded its milestone of 100 million kilometres to over 150 million kilometres. And has announced a partnership with Yamaha’s Nigerian subsidiary, Moto Business Service Nigeria (MBSN), to finance and maintain over 50,000 vehicles over the next 2 years. The partnership is for Max to scale its operations in Nigeria, Ghana, and Cameroon. Max will also accelerate its goal of serving 100,000 independent commercial drivers by the end of 2023 as against its current 18000.
