According to the Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP), 90% of agri-food production in Africa is provided by smallholders, most of whom have very limited access to transport infrastructure. As a result, transport costs represent 27.5% of the final sales price of agricultural products, and post-harvest losses of fruits and vegetables cost up to 40% of total production, due to the lack of optimal options for transport means.DITEX proposes to:
– Interconnect the African Road Supply Chain in one online Search Engine called WhatsNear – Reduce the transportation costs up to -50%
– Accelerate the goods transportation in landlocked developing countries which face poor coverage of telecommunication networks.
