Distribution Express (DITEX)


Since its creation, DITEX has been operating in GPS Tracking Solutions, providing customised Tracking Solutions to companies and individuals. By using the GPS Tracking Technology, DITEX has developed WhatsNear, a Mobile and Web Application, which aims to reduce the cost of agricultural products transportation by 50% and enhance intra-African trade.

Market Opportunity/ Problem

According to the Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP), 90% of agri-food production in Africa is provided by smallholders, most of whom have very limited access to transport infrastructure. As a result, transport costs represent 27.5% of the final sales price of agricultural products, and post-harvest losses of fruits and vegetables cost up to 40% of total production, due to the lack of optimal options for transport.
