The African continent has one of the world’s highest rates of urbanization. A lot of economic variables are driving this urbanization, the most prominent of which are young people commuting to work in urban areas. Intercity transportation services in Nigeria and across Africa struggle to recruit and keep clients in a fragmented market.
T40 has created a number of solutions to assist mobility suppliers in attracting and retaining clients. With the company’s PoS solutions and logistics platform, T40’s solutions let suppliers better promote their offerings as well as better manage individual vehicles or fleets.
T40’s solutions go end-to-end with a client-facing app that makes it easier for riders to plan and buy their routes.
Finally, T40 also offers personalizable entertainment centers to improve the ride quality and provide an additional marketing channel. T40’s innovative solutions position the company well to scale within Nigeria and beyond as the African intercity transportation and logistics industry rises to meet the emerging demand.
“Driven by population growth and urbanization, logistics and intercity transport have always been important to Nigeria and Africa’s economic growth. T40 presents a customer-driven solution that leverages technology to delight commuters and transport operators alike. It’s an innovative solution being executed by a strong team with promise and we look forward to working with them,” said Tomi Davies, GreenTec Capital Partners Chief Investment Officer.
