Transaid welcomes Lytx on board as corporate members

We are thrilled to welcome Lytx as our newest corporate member. The fleet management company will be joining a group of over 30 industry champions committed to helping us improve commercial driving standards and ensure better access to healthcare in sub-Saharan Africa.

Lytx is a major provider of video telematics, analytics, productivity and safety solutions for commercial and public sector fleets. Bill Ruff, Vice President at Lytx, believes the company’s values are strongly aligned with Transaid’s objectives: “Transaid’s focus on road safety and their support of professional driver training is outstanding and addresses an important industry need.

“At Lytx we provide cutting edge technology that enables the transportation industry to operate more safely and efficiently. Transaid’s sustainable achievements – and hearing HRH The Princess Royal speak so passionately about the organisation’s important work – reinforced our decision to become a corporate member. Just like Transaid, we are committed to improving road safety and saving lives.”

Transaid is set to explore opportunities for using Lytx’s video telematics systems within its professional driver training programmes, which currently operate in Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

Caroline Barber, Chief Executive at Transaid, is excited to see what the future has in store for the partnership. “Corporate support from the industry is essential to our ability to have maximum impact on the ground and it’s fantastic to welcome Lytx on board. Their expertise opens the door to a wealth of new opportunities as we continue to grow our projects and aim to improve more lives.”

Lytx also plans to introduce Transaid to its international partners, to pursue their shared goals of reducing on-road risk for fleet operators and the driver community.
