Agriloggi in circular logistics: agriculture products delivery to small farmers

Abstract

Brazil is a country that has about 27% of GDP generated by agribusiness in 2021 (https://bit.ly/fapesp_cpea). Agribusiness production ranges from family production that has its income for subsistence to large producers with annual revenues above R$ 1.6 million (https://central3.to.gov.br/arquivo/180407/). This diversity spreads throughout the national territory, generating different visions and business opportunities. However, small producers have higher production and disposal costs, since large producers are able to negotiate directly with manufacturers the terms and amounts to be paid. Thus, the development of technologies that facilitate communication, dissemination and delivery of products to small rural producers, as well as their own production, is the pain that in this project we seek to solve. For this, we are building the Agriloggi project: taking logistics into the hands of small producers (http://www.agriloggi.com.br/), with the interest of developing a platform in which entrepreneurs in this agribusiness segment, focused on small rural producer, can display their products and deliver at the lowest possible cost, seeking to maximize the profitability of these agribusiness families. This is a business that fits into the circular economy, where it seeks to develop software solutions that have low financial cost for the family farming segment, to provide a digital transformation that can have the partnership of city halls as dissemination channels for their region and seeking to maximize the profit of people who tend to invest in the society where they live. Agriloggi already has part of the features implemented for the white label. In this demand to FAPESP, we seek to validate the concept of circular logistics to meet the needs of businesses aimed at family farmers, such as: agriculture and livestock; agriculture houses; hortifruti shops; local supermarkets that sell rural products; educational institutions that buy food from local producers via government programs such as the PNAE (https://www.fnde.gov.br/programas/pnae) via FNDE resources; and so many other businesses that add to the local and regional economy throughout our national territory. For this, it starts from the central hypothesis that it is viable to develop an application that can be integrated with the white label platform under development by Agriloggi for small deliveries to this segment at lower costs than those practiced by competitors such as UberX and giving visibility to those companies that systematize deliveries and transfers of people within the State of São Paulo, such as motorcycle-taxi and shared taxi cooperatives.
