Helping informal logistics providers to earn more, get paid quickly, and grow their business


PROBLEM

Informal logistics providers in the construction, mining, and oil & gas industries work on lucrative projects but are also some of the poorest people in the country, because they do all the work but capture very little value.

SOLUTION

Empower informal logistics providers to earn more, get paid quickly, and grow their business to help get more assets on the road to power infrastructure development in Africa. Kadi Africa aggregates short-term and long-term haulage projects and provides an AI/ML-based cost/risk prediction algorithm, payment API integration, and access to working capital to help them lower operating costs, reduce payment default risks, and speed up financial transactions.
