Transportation & Logistics
In supply chains in African businesses, the challenge is not big data, as in developed countries, but simply data itself. While striving for increased visibility, African companies’ goals remain focused on the internal organisation rather than suppliers and customers. Bwala is a crowdsourcing platform for last mile logistics partner. The startup recently secured funding from CFC Stanbic as well as a partnership with ISUZU East Africa and Jumia Kenya. They also announced their expansion plan to Uganda with their operations set to kick-off in February 2019.
