Kobo is a technology company launched in 2016 with the purpose of adding value to Nigerian industries. The company began beta operations working with businesses in the FMCG space to effectively manage their logistics. In less than a year of operations, the company generated ₦979 million in revenue using its proprietary artificial intelligence – HEDGELogistics, to reduce costs for customers while driving efficiency in the logistics operations of its partners, such as Chisco.

To further the exchange of knowledge among logistics professionals regarding the value that technology can add to their companies’ operations, Kobo is proud to announce that it will be hosting the first ever Logistics Professionals Conference, with the theme – Leveraging Technology to Increase Profits in Logistics.

Regarding the company’s move to host this conference, CEO and Co-Founder, Obi Ozor remarked;

“The challenges facing the logistics industry affect all industries in Africa. The lack of efficiency and key infrastructure in logistics is leading to higher cost of operations, downsizing and in some cases, company shutdown. With this conference, we want successful logistics professionals to share their insights with fellow professionals. At Kobo, we believe that by 2020 logistics in Africa will operate at the same level of efficiency as the European and US logistics sectors.”
