About us
Jetstream is a technology enabled logistics company. We aim to give businesses in emerging markets more control over their global supply chains. "Igniting a Revolution in cross-border trade logistics" Jetstream is powered by a network of freight carriers, customs agents and ground transporters that combine technology and on-the-ground know-how to move shipments, of any size, between global markets and the African continent.


Jetstream acts as a vertical broker between the fragmented and often-hidden segments of cross-border supply chains in Africa. From instant pricing, to cargo tracking and customs regulation transparency, Jetstream makes the process visible.


Jetstream’s vision is to deliver a frictionless cross-border logistics experience to businesses in the fastest-growing economies in the world. Our product is an e-logistics operating system that breaks through silos in logistics verticals, and streamlines the distribution of trade support services like finance and insurance, for businesses that will define the next generation of African trade. Ultimately, businesses across our continent will use the Jetstream operating system to move things of value across our fragmented borders with unprecedented speed and visibility. We work together as a team, with an obsessive commitment to the success of our customers.
