Uber expands partnership with Moove to empower drivers in Ghana

Uber expands partnership with Moove: After successful launches in Nigeria and South Africa, Uber has extended their partnership with Moove, Uber’s preferred fleet partner in Sub-Saharan Africa, to provide potential and current Uber drivers in Ghana with long-term access to vehicles. The largest partnership of its kind, the collaboration aims to lower existing barriers to car ownership on the continent and empower drivers to be their own boss within a shorter time frame.

Drivers on the Uber platform now have access to brand new Volkswagen Polo among other models for either Flexi Car Weekly Rental or Drive to Own deals, including zero deposit, free maintenance, fuel, and smartphone allowance as well as free insurance.

Moove’s partnership with Uber will introduce low-barrier entry methods into the Uber app by offering improved pricing models for car ownership through solutions such as flexible rental and drive-to-own options, while providing riders with access to newer car models when they request a ride.

As we recover, we know we need to continue to offer drivers quality, compact and cost-efficient vehicle choices that will better help economically to boost their weekly earning, with the same Uber experience and door-to-door safety experience. We are excited to extend our partnership with Moove to make this a reality,” says Jesscia Poku, Country Manager for Uber Ghana.

The multiple ownership methods are designed to suit drivers with diverse budgets and goals, allowing Uber drivers who were previously unable to afford or finance their own vehicle to become their own boss.

For instance, the flexi-rental option provides short-term vehicle access that spans between one to four weeks, while drive-to-own options are available to drivers with 24, 36 and 48 month agreements respectively.

Speaking on the partnership, Moove Ghana’s Country Manager, Mr Jephthah Datsomor, said: “We have been working with Uber to develop strategies to help drivers manage their financial operating costs. We are excited to support drivers across Africa, including Ghana, to grow their businesses and improve their livelihoods within a shorter time frame, especially as mobility returns to cities across the continent.”

This collaboration reaffirms Uber’s commitment to Ghana and Africa as a whole, by providing enhanced earning potential and better mobility for all.

All Uber’s products carry the same door-to-door safety features as any other Uber option such as in-app emergency button, Injury Protection, 24/7 support, including driver background checks and screenings.

Nissan prepared for growing its Manufacturing Footprint in Africa: Trains 12 Ghanaians to start Nissan’s assembly plant in Ghana

On Thursday, 12 Ghanaian technicians will be graduating from Nissan’s plant, ready to spearhead the launch of Nissan’s assembly plant in Ghana.

For the last 12 weeks, they have been learning the finer points of how to assemble the Japanese automaker’s legendary Navara, which is currently being built in Africa at the Rosslyn plant in South Africa and expected to start rolling off the assembly lines from the end of this month and on sale across African markets in the months that follow.

The comprehensive training programme course will equip the trainees with the ability to assemble the new Nissan Navara and learn the principles of the Nissan Production Way. This is to ensure that the numerous quality control measures are enforced and allow them to help train the next generation of Ghanaian engineers to assembly these vehicles in their home country.

“The production of a vehicle is intricate, so the training course we have been offering will not be the end of our work in supporting the Ghanaian team’s capabilities,” says Shafick Solomons, Plant Director

“It’s one of the many steps we are taking to support a sustainable relationship between South Africa and Ghana going forward. We will continue to share resources and knowledge, as well as training to make sure that the Ghanaian team is as agile and efficient as any team in the rest of the world all working towards and adhering to Nissan’s global production standard, the Nissan Production Way.”

The preparation for the Ghana Assembly plant follows Nissan’s ground-breaking Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Ghana that was signed during the initial stages of working towards the Ghana Automotive Development policy.

“This is a wonderful moment for us as a global company with incredible African roots,” says Mike Whitfield, Managing Director of Nissan. “We set out to build a vehicle in Africa for Africa by Africans with the Navara, which we are about to achieve from our Nissan South African plant.

“Now we are laying the groundwork to do just that in Ghana, as we help the people and government of Ghana begin to realise their dream of creating a Sustainable Automotive Industry in their country.

“We have always said that we wanted to work with countries on the continent who want to partner with us in this regard. We were the first movers in Nigeria and we are looking at other countries in Africa where there is similar potential, which is both exciting and timely as we emerge from the economic ravages of the COVID 19 pandemic.”

The Navara production facility is in Accra, the capital of Ghana, and will be 100% Ghanaian operated by the Japan Motors Trading Company (JMTC), which invested US $3 million into its construction, following Ghana’s drafting of its automotive development policy to encourage investment in the sector.

“Nissan and Japan Motors support the Ghana Automotive Development Policy, which is why we want to do our part in creating jobs and stimulating African economies. We both want to create a new future for the sector, and change the lives of the people who build, test, and drive these vehicles,” says Salem Kalmoni, Managing Director Japan Motors.
