Eurasian Resources Group (ERG) is a leading diversified natural resources producer. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) ERG Africa mines cobalt which is then transported by truck to various ports in Africa, one being Richards Bay, South Africa, after which the cobalt is loaded into containers and then shipped to China.
Africa due to its unique environment offers challenges in logistics in that security and the quality of the raw materials in transit are a major concern. Additionally, the ERG Telematics application solves a unique problem in the supply chain, being proof-of-custody. This allows companies to prove the origin and handling of the materials in the supply chain.
