Novatel Wireless signed a partnership with the Cameroon National Taxi Union to provide Ctrack vehicle tracking and driver behavior monitoring to the taxi industry in the Republic of Cameroon.
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.
The multi-year agreement will enable the Government of Cameroon to provide GPS vehicle tracking, safety and compliance products to its more than 100,000 taxis currently operating on the country’s roads. Taxis are the primary mode of transportation across the African continent. In Cameroon alone, taxis transport over 8 million commuters daily.
