New National Cool Logistics Network launched in Ethiopia

The government of Ethiopia is committed to improve the logistics infrastructure and procedures in the country to promote and support its fruit and vegetable production and export sector. “The development of a National Cool Logistics Network is a strategic project and vital for many economic activities in Ethiopia,” said Ethiopian Minister of Transport H.E Dagmawit Moges.

The National Cool Logistics Network is a joint project between the governments of Ethiopia, Dijibouti and the Netherlands and involves local businesses and smallholder farmers. By creating this cold chain network, post-harvest food losses of fruit and vegetables can be reduced and more nutritious food will be available at the local and regional market for fair prices, both for the consumers and for the farmers.
