THE NESt AFRICA: SUPPLY CHAIN, LOGISTICS & E-COMMERCE
THE PLATFORM THAT CONNECTS AFRICA'S SUPPLY CHAIN, LOGISTICS & E-COMMERCE BUSINESS OPERATORS WITH BIG CORPORATES, SUPPLIERS, FUNDERS, EXPERTS AND OTHER NETWORKS
SUPPLY CHAIN, LOGISTICS & E-COMMERCE
Moving agricultural produce and manufactured goods into, out of and within Africa remains one of the main bottle-necks as Africa seeks a bigger pie of the World’s economy
Africa’s ability to derive the best value out of its resources and its ability to trade within itself and the rest of the World is affected by the low adoption of the latest supply chain, logistics and the emerging business brought about by the e-commerce sector
The Nest Africa Supply Chain, Logistics & E-Commerce innovations platform connects young and established African supply chain, logistics and e-commerce companies with big corporates, suppliers and other stakeholders and builds their capacity through business incubation, events and training & mentorship. It further provides them with access to financial capital from the community that makes up the Hub to catalyse the sustainable growth of the sector.
The focus areas of this platform include:
Last mile delivery and customer engagement
Blockchain technology, internet of things (IoT), machine learning and more
Digitalisation & automation of supply chains
Asset tracking, traceability and identification
Operational efficiency and risk reduction in the supply chains
E-Commerce tools including risk management and operational efficiency technologies
- Warehouse management and systems adoption
