Abstract

Our goal was to help the Walvis Bay Corridor Group improve the safety and efficiency of trucking in southern Africa by furthering the development of an informational smartphone application. After meeting with transport and tourism companies, truck drivers, and tourists, we identified key problems that arise while driving through southern Africa. To address them, we recommended including safety, facility, and border information; conducting managerial training sessions; offering white-labeled versions; and assigning responsibility to oversee the application’s continued success.
