TMS CROSS BORDER MONITORING THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN AFRICA

Originally for Trademark SA, and later for the World Bank, Crickmay developed the Transport Monitoring System (TMS) within the Crickmay platform, which can monitor 100,000 ‘every minute’ truck movements through 22 countries within the Southern African region. The value of this data is that it identifies pain points or bottlenecks which hinder logistics operations. Trade flow is about the physical movement of trucks and the need to monitor movement is fundamental to improving trade in the region.

The value of the platform includes:

  • Transport corridor analysis and identification of bottlenecks
  • Border and node analysis:

–  Activity by border post (for example) by hours, day, week, month, year (since 2017).

–  Activity monitoring within the border post by geo zone.
