Live Fr8 levels the playing field for smaller transporters anywhere in Africa and empowers them to compete on equal footing.

The technological breakthrough: 

Live Fr8 is the technology platform that harnesses artificial intelligence to enable suppliers and transporters to meet in the cloud, manage and monitor transactions, and rate one another. This user-friendly app provides access to a huge database but uses little data. 

How Live Fr8 improves your profits: 

Suppliers load cargo free of charge on the app for transporters to find. The supplier lists the loads by weight, category, source address and destination, on the database. The algorithm helps transporters to search for specific loads in the specified area, thereby turning empty loads into full loads. The transporter nominates the price to move the cargo to the destination. The transporter only pays a small fee to Live Fr8 once a load has been obtained successfully. The supplier and the transporter transact directly with one another. Live Fr8 is not involved in the contracting process between the parties and is not a counterparty in the deal. 

Live Fr8 empowers entrepreneurs in Africa: 

This app is available in Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eswatini, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius (including Reunion), Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
