Road transport: Nearly 100,000 actors of the sector must be trained and professionalized

(Togo First) - Nearly 100,000 actors operating in the road transports sector must be trained and professionalized, data from professional associations and syndicates reveals.  

In detail, this includes more than 95,000 drivers transporting people and goods, nearly 1,000 recognized intermediaries, about 2,600 owners of transport firms or entities, and 60 driving schools officially accredited by the State. 

While these figures are to be considered with care, since there is no real up-to-date registry, main parties concerned agree it is urgent to deeply reform the sector and professionalize its actors. 

Last Tuesday even, this was recalled. It was during a workshop organized in the framework of the project to make Togo's logistics services more competitive. The latter is led by the government, with the support of the International Road Transports Union (IRU) and the World Bank.

It aims at making the country's road transport sector more performant and professional, by 2022 - in line with goals set by the national development plan.
