Bridgestone’s globally trusted fleet management solution, Webfleet, is launching its third African presence in Botswana, by partnering with Kgare Digital. This expansion will bring high-end tech skills, investment, and jobs to the country. Telematics will provide a similar service to what is being offered in Namibia, from basic vehicle tracking to comprehensive fleet management, including live diagnostic data collection and real-time route optimization. Additional advanced solutions, like onboard cameras and other hardware, will be brought in on an as-needed basis or from customer requests.
Kgare Digital General Manager Malebogo Busang says the investment by Webfleet will provide quality jobs in the sector and see the beginning of a new sector. As a landlocked country, Botswana imports almost everything we consume, mainly using road transport through the two ports of entry, Namibia, and South Africa. This presents the perfect opportunity to implement the necessary digitization of vehicles, to run more intelligently and efficiently.
