The health and safety of our customers and delivery agents is a top priority for us. We are in a difficult period which requires us to put in place an effective strategy to further secure all our deliveries. To this end, we have decided to launch this vaccination campaign which concerns all of our deliverers,

The current vaccination campaign that Jumia Morocco has just launched for its deliverers, employees and service providers comes in the wake of these measures”, recalled Badr Bouslikhane, Secretary General of Jumia Morocco.

Among the key health measures deployed by the e-commerce platform is the "contactless" delivery option, which eliminates any possibility of physical contact and limits any physical contact with cash as much as possible, but also between delivery people. and customers.
