At Treepz, we’re thrilled to reflect on the remarkable achievements and growth we experienced throughout 2023. Our vision and mission, fueled by a commitment to transform transportation across Africa, have guided us in providing reliable and sustainable solutions to our ever-expanding community.
Vision and Mission:
Vision: To ensure that wherever you are, you can effortlessly book and pay for the perfect vehicle to explore Africa with our reliable Treepz hosts.
Mission: To put Africa’s 26 million cars to better use on the continent.
In the heart of our vision and mission lies the crucial role hosts (or vehicle owners) play in revolutionizing transportation across Africa through Treepz. Our unwavering commitment revolves around creating a seamless platform where individual car owners become key contributors to the success of our mission.
Hosts as Treepz Ambassadors:
Our hosts are more than just vehicle owners; they are ambassadors of Treepz, representing the heart of our community-driven platform. By opening up their vehicles to fellow passengers, hosts embody the spirit of collaboration and shared experiences.
Treepz hosts are at the forefront of transforming Africa’s transportation dynamics. Through our platform, we empower hosts to leverage their assets, turning their cars into valuable resources that benefit both them and the broader community. This empowerment extends beyond financial gains to include fostering a sense of pride and connection within the Treepz ecosystem.
Creating Economic Opportunities:
By hosting their vehicles on Treepz including cars, buses, trucks and more, individuals have the opportunity to generate income and actively participate in the economic growth of their communities. Treepz serves as a catalyst for economic opportunities, enabling hosts to contribute to their livelihoods and, in turn, support the economic development of the regions they operate in.
Building Trust and Reliability:
Treepz hosts are integral to our commitment to providing reliable transportation solutions. Through their dedication to offering well-maintained vehicles and exceptional service, hosts contribute to creating a trustworthy and dependable network that our passengers can rely on for their travel needs whether for employee transportation/staff bus, group tours or individual rides.
Our vision emphasizes not only the accessibility of vehicles but also the creation of a vibrant community. Treepz hosts foster a sense of belonging and camaraderie among users, making the exploration of Africa a collaborative and enjoyable experience.
In the span of just one year since the launch of our marketplace, Treepz has emerged as a powerful catalyst for financial empowerment, leaving an indelible mark on the lives of our esteemed hosts. Through our platform, we’ve orchestrated the generation of over $1.2 million in earnings for hosts—an accomplishment that transcends mere financial figures. This achievement stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to uplift and empower individuals, fostering economic growth and prosperity on a global scale.
Global Technology Footprint:
What began as a solution to address transportation challenges in Lagos, Nigeria, has evolved into a global phenomenon. Treepz’s technology-driven solution has traversed borders, reaching more than 4 million customers across 6 countries and spanning 3 continents. Our expansion beyond Nigeria is a testament to the scalability and effectiveness of the Treepz platform in meeting the diverse needs of users worldwide.
As Treepz extends its technological footprint, it brings with it not just a mode of transportation but a revolutionary approach to shared mobility. We’ve seamlessly integrated technology and connectivity to create a dynamic ecosystem that transcends geographical boundaries, connecting people and communities in a shared journey of exploration and discovery.
