German experts set their sights on the West African vehicle identification market The Government of the Republic of Senegal is introducing a new system to register vehicle owners and identify vehicles in the West African state. This should improve the state’s control over vehicle tax and provide a sound footing for the insurance sector. TÖNNJES C.A.R.D. is participating in this restructuring process by investing over one million euros in the construction of a new production plant for vehicle licence plates in the capital, Dakar. The specialist manufacturer of security licence plates and RFID-based vehicle identification systems has formed a long-term collaboration with Gemalto, a French software company and systems integrator.
