Gozem, the super app that is now available in Lome, Cotonou, Libreville, and a number of other West African cities, has announced the launch of a taxi booking service in Douala, Cameroon.
“We are very excited to bring Cameroonians a simplified, safer, and more convenient taxi cab solution. Based on our experience in other Francophone markets across West and Central Africa, we are convinced that Gozem’s innovative offering will create real value for Douala’s passengers and drivers now, and others across the country in the near future. Very soon, we will expand the range of services we offer in Cameroon to include motorcycles and delivery services, based on the needs of users,” said Jean-Martial Moulaud, Gozem group director.
Gozem, a taxi-hailing app that launched in Togo in November 2018, now operates in 12 cities across Togo, Benin, Gabon, and Cameroon, with over one million downloads and over seven million trips since its launch.
The startup has been transitioning to a super app model, enabled by a US$5 million funding round last year, and now offers a suite of services to three types of customers in French-speaking Sub-Saharan Africa: consumers, transportation providers, and businesses.
It is now expanding its operations, with Cameroonians able to download the Gozem app, which is available for Android and iOS, and order a cab with a single click.
Gozem will soon provide Cameroonians the ability to book motorcycle and tricycle (tuk tuk) taxis, as well as groceries, petrol bottles, meals, and more via the all-in-one Gozem super app, in addition to the taxi cab ride-hailing service launched today.
