How Kobo360 Is Changing the African Logistics Space.
“Kobo360 is a company we Africans have to promote, as the innovation is what is needed for Africa and driven by Africans.” – The Managing Director, Groupe Gato, Prosper Koumako Gato.
Reliable Logistics service has been a nightmare in the African continent; connecting truck drivers with goods, tracking delivery of freight goods, supply chain risks, product insecurity, middlemen interference, etc are challenges that we should be solving to protect the interest of the African economy.
But how do we achieve this to ensure a stable, reliable and accessible logistics and supply chain system in the African continent? The co-founder, Obi Ozor saw how the challenges were creating a disparity between the African Logistics industry and that of other developed continents. Having the quest to create an opportunity out of these challenges, he founded Kobo360 and leveraged technology as a major tool to help solve logistics issues and improve reverse logistics for truck drivers and owners efficiently.
Kobo360 logistics solution which is powered by our app, empowers truck drivers to easily connect with companies that have haulage needs. In essence, Kobo360 platform helps cargo owners, truck owners, drivers and cargo recipients to achieve an efficient and profitable supply chain.
To ensure there are more trucks to meet up with demand, Kobo360 has made truck investment available to individuals, who can now invest in trucks conveniently. KoboWIN allows an individual, corporate body or investor to invest in truck/s with Kobo360 while they get monthly returns on their investment.
To further establish our commitment to improving logistics services in Africa, our solution has been proven valuable and peculiar to meet the needs of logistics in African countries. Kobo360 Team trip which was facilitated by the Minister of Posts and Digital economy Togo, Cina Lawson showed how well our solution is recognized and supported in other African countries.
Hence, having trusted the solution to help track their trucks, empower the drivers, create financial stability for truck owners and boost the Togolese economy, they made a commitment to work with Kobo360.
