Bridgestone Mobility Solutions partners with Kgare Digital to introduce Webfleet services in Botswana
· Botswana becomes the third country in Africa, after Namibia and South Africa, where companies can take advantage of Webfleet telematics solutions.
· Using Webfleet, Botswana’s fleets can reduce costs, improve performance and increase driver and road safety.
· Webfleet has partnered with Botswana-based Kgare Digital to provide local sales capabilities, training and delivery of services.
Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, a Business Unit of Bridgestone, is introducing Webfleet, its globally trusted fleet management solution, in Botswana with the help of partner Kgare Digital, who will provide the local in-country sales and support services.
The introduction makes Botswana the third country in Africa to gain access to Webfleet’s broad portfolio of solutions, from basic vehicle tracking to comprehensive fleet management, with live diagnostic data collection and real-time route optimisation. The solution enables fleet operators of all sizes to make better, faster decisions that can increase performance, reduce costs and make drivers and vehicles safer.
Raj Bajaj, VP Fleet Management Solutions International at Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, said, “These are exciting times as we continue the expansion of the Webfleet service to different parts of the world. As a landlocked country, Botswana is heavily dependent on road transportation for its imports. Our fleet management solutions can play a significant role in digitising transport in the country, helping to build more efficient, safe and productive logistics.”
Justin Manson, Webfleet South Africa Sales Director, said, “With Webfleet now being present in three African markets, we can offer dedicated resources to transport and logistics customers in these locations, while supporting progress in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. We also look forward to working with Kgare Digital, who will provide us with the sales capabilities we need to grow and thrive in Botswana.”
Both the introduction of Webfleet to Botswana and the partnership with Kgare Digital connect with the Bridgestone E8 Commitment, which serves as the guide for Bridgestone’s transformation into a sustainable solutions company, reinforcing its commitment to supporting diversity and delivering value to society and customers, while earning the trust of future generations.
