Road hauliers form an employers organisation

(Togo First) - In Togo, six associations and federations of road hauliers formed the Togolese Road Hauliers Employers Organisation (FPT2R), on December 8, 2020.

Among the six that came together, there is the Union Nationale des Transporteurs Routiers du Togo (Unatrot), the Union des Syndicats des Conducteurs Routiers du Togo (Usycort), and the Fédération Syndicale des Travailleurs des Transports du Togo (Fesytrat).

The move “lines up with goals set under the first axis of the national development plan which aims at making Togo a logistics hub and a first-class business center in the region,” said Ama Aklesso, chairperson of the newly formed organisation.   

For his part, the secretary-general  of the ministry of transport, Dr. Michel K. Tindano, affirmed that the organisation’s creation is congruent with the government’s 2020-2025 roadmap which aims at consolidating Togo’s position as a logistics and service hub. 

The FPT2R should help formalize and professionalize transports in Togo, as well as significantly contribute to the country’s modernization.
