Mix Telematics will soon be setting up in Kenya in a plan to expand its operations in the wider East African region in the next three years. The global provider of mobile asset management solutions.The fleet management solutions company, plans to invest a significant percentage of all revenues derived from the region over the next three years and beyond as it seeks to grow its current partner network in East Africa and introduce innovative solutions that further enables its customers to run safer and more efficient fleet operations in the market.
The company is also looking to further align itself with the local, regional and national government initiatives to further assist in ensuring not only an efficient, but also a safe, secure and compliant transportation environment in the country.
Recently, the company received approval of its speed management solutions for all its commercial vehicle operators by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) in the Kenyan market and has committed to continue working with the NTSA to ensure that they maintain this certification.
“The approval by NTSA means that all our existing clients, as well as any new end users, can continue to enjoy the benefits of our premium fleet management platform in the knowledge that they are also compliant with the requirements as laid down by the NTSA for commercial vehicles and that they are not required to install any additional equipment into their vehicles,” added Mr. Horan.
This is in line with a campaign launched by NTSA dubbed ‘Save 1000 Lives’ in April 2015. The Save 1,000 Lives campaign will see the private sector mobilized to create specialized programs to support road safety initiatives.
The company, having established itself in the traditional transport and logistics space, is also planning to move into the public transport, container tracking and stolen vehicle recovery arenas.
