Kobo360 and Tak Logistics
Yams are a staple food in Nigeria, but an estimated 40 percent of crop yields are wasted due to a lack of temperature-controlled storage. Nigerian innovator Tak Logistics and African e-logistics company Kobo360 are partnering in a pilot that seeks to extend the shelf life of yams by six months. This sustainable cooling solution will deploy a Bitzer compressor with low-GHG refrigerant at a specially constructed insulated storage facility built of adobe bricks.
Kobo360 is Africa’s innovation leader in integrated logistics solutions and truck brokerage services. The company aggregates end-to-end haulage operations to help cargo owners, truck owners, drivers, and cargo recipients achieve an efficient supply chain framework.
