Apoorva Kumar

Chief Operating Officer at Jumia Group

Session description
Apoorva Kumar, the Chief Operating Officer of Jumia Group, a key player in Africa’s e-commerce landscape. With a rich background spanning India’s top companies and an impressive journey within Jumia, Apoorva is at the forefront of supply chain transformation. In this blog, we’ll explore his strategies for revolutionizing the last mile of the supply chain in Africa, as shared at the Supply Chain Digitalization Conference 2022.

Apoorva Kumar shared some insightful views about the challenges of delivering online orders in Africa and how Jumia used smart technology to make it easier. In a vast continent with unique difficulties, getting orders on time used to be tricky, but Jumia had a digital solution. They used computers and special systems to manage their supply chain in 11 African countries, ensuring that everything arrived promptly, whether it was on-demand deliveries, online shopping, or even using trucks and drones! What was really cool was that they also used computer learning to figure out what people wanted and where they wanted it. Even when things got tough, like bad weather or rough roads, Jumia had plans in place to keep things running smoothly. Jumia’s mission was to make buying things online in Africa reliable and strong, so customers could always trust them to deliver their items.
