Vehicle tracking and fleet management company Ctrack has announced it has signed a partnership with the Cameroon National Taxi Union which will see the company provide vehicle tracking and driver behaviour monitoring to the Republic of Cameroon's taxi industry.
Taxis are the primary mode of transportation across the African continent. In Cameroon alone, taxis transport over eight million commuters daily. The agreement is the country’s first step towards implementing legislation that will mandate all Cameroon taxi operators to have vehicle tracking units installed in their vehicles.
“Ctrack shares our commitment to creating safer roads for all. This shows through the quality of their technology and analytics,” said Augustin Ngangoua, national president of the Cameroon National Taxi Union. “This initiative will not only improve the safety of drivers and passengers, but also other road users and the public in general. Through Ctrack’s commitment, we will engage in talks with the Transport Ministry to enforce the installation of GPS tracking units into all taxis.”
“Ctrack is proud to have won this very competitive bid, which helps solidify our position as a premier global telematics provider,” said Cobus Grove, general manager, Ctrack Global.
The multi-year agreement will enable the government of Cameroon to provide GPS vehicle tracking, safety and compliance solutions to its more than 100,000 taxis currently operating on the country’s roads.
