  • About
Company description
We use an open marketplace paired with smart algorithms to better match demand and supply of cargo transport. By using smart-mapped spaces we reduce wastage on moving vehicles to offer cost-savings. These lower transport costs, reduces the barriers to entry of products across Africa, and inflation linked increases for consumers. Furthermore, reduced number of vehicles are needed due to better utilization, leading to lower congestions, and as such, is better for the environment. We create transparency with our online bidding portal for logistical shipments and aim to support delivery of aid to places where needed for less (use us World Food Programme!) We are proving that new business models and innovative thinking can connect Africa and enable growth, assuring the investment community that we are moving Africa forward, smartly.
