Electronic Cargo Tracking System for Ghana's National Petroleum Authority (NPA)

Electronic Cargo Tracking System for Ghana’s National Petroleum Authority (NPA)

Ghana’s National Petroleum Authority has implemented Rock Africa’s end-to-end Internet of Things monitoring solution to track the delivery of petroleum products in Ghana. Jointly deployed by its Singaporean partner, Ascent Solutions, the patented iSPOT® ECTS will provide real time and continuous security monitoring of thousands of heavy vehicles that deliver petroleum products from 16 major depots to 4,000 petrol retail outlets nationwide. The new system will increase transparency and accountability, safeguard asset integrity, and ensure accurate reporting of transport claims. Ghanaian Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia together with NPA’s CEO Hassan Tampuli and Rock Africa’s CEO Mr Francis Bullen Gavor officiated the launch in Accra, Ghana.

About 98% of petroleum products in Ghana are transported by roads. The tracking system is one of several measures to tighten controls in the supply chain and provide a reliable platform for planned control measures at retail outlets. The NPA will also be deploying automatic tank gauging, and tank management and monitoring systems at retail outlets progressively this year
