Togo’s post service to adopt a What3Words-based geolocation addressing system

(Togo First) - Togo’s Post Company (SPT) plans to develop a geolocation addressing system using three words from the dictionary, based on a technology of British startup What3Words.

First steps to use the technology are expected to be taken this beginning of the year, according to the ministry of posts and digital economy. This technology let’s recall is already being used by posts in Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire and Djibouti.

With the new systems which adresses each 9m2 of the earth, with a satellite view option, Togo’s posts will be able to better serve their customers, hence boosting e-commerce and its contribution to the economic growth. Moreover, What3Words allows for code searching offline.

Steps to adopt the technology would include attributing addresses in various languages including local dialects.
