AgreLine Inc.


AgreLine helps farmers and agribusinesses share information to optimize their relationships and reduce food wastage and costs. Much of Nigeria's agricultural produce ends up as waste, with estimates as high as 80% of harvested food crops perishing every year due to poor logistics and the absence of reliable market information. A lack of organized supply chain channels has caused once affordable food products to become prohibitively expensive. Operational costs for food processing companies are also increased due to a lack of options. AgreLine views this problem as an opportunity to create an e-logistics platform (strictly B2B) to accommodate and unite the five important stakeholders in the agricultural sector: farmers, transporters, warehousing/storage facilities, business speculators, and processing companies. The portal will connect the stakeholders and enable them to share information, coordinate activities, and achieve an efficient delivery system.
