Project Description

The objective is to provide multi annual funding to the Flying Swans Consortium, consisting of Mercator Novus BV, Boskalis NV and Port of Rotterdam NV. The consortium aims to develop agro logistical tool corridors in emerging markets. The funding will be used to identify and develop projects to become bankable projects in a number of identified countries. In the first scoping phase, Ethiopia and South Africa have been selected. FMO will fund this project to promote the export of fruit and vegetables of the identified country, create jobs, reduce Co2 emissions and food waste, by developing cold stores and moving cargo from trucks to cooled rail facilities.
