local i think you need a country if you have both a visit to the doctor and a good opportunity to walk there. still he says the locally manufactured cars are much too expensive the automotive expert would like to see the government do more to support companies and subsidize production. what you need to. be affordable because it will be going to productive to locally produced you know that which would be treated expensive and they want to do that so the country have to look at the electorate in electoral victory to tell you that's supposed to look at it has to do with the labor the support for it it can look at it with life in the sea and all of the regulations that would put of people probably to need setting up a thing because they are the country. but once the students have finished their technical training they're likely to find jobs in the domestic automotive sector by contrast the opportunities for used car dealers are looking bad given the locally

government for these local dealers precisely because they think that kenyans in order to level anything or for the. most need cause the law can't do a very brief if you can do you think there is a you feel there's there's a an outrage from from drive us and. yes indeed there is enough treats from drivers because of the cost fatah oh if you look at the oldest car at the moment in kenya it was mine unfortunately is until that is fully used cars and if this will cause an engine locked into nineteen that means they're all this got to be forced into the country where have the money to him to be seen these cars i'm not one of those who owns and so is that. x i'm sleepy and all that and while the government is saying that the locally as it was cars gates and exits duty it doesn't seem to be cost effective almost. rivera in nairobi thank you

normally would drive back empty but manny knows that a truck will be needed not far from be in a few hours so it can drive back to a with freight at least that's how it works in principle. this sector is pretty dry minded when we say we use artificial intelligence and we encounter quite a few reservations what kind of reservations office to whether it works is a reliable tool for this can you trust it basically halakhah. trucking a hauler in hamburg has been using the ai system for several months the company's trucks are in transit throughout europe. i the car want to thanks to cargo next we've already managed to minimize our empty runs to fifteen percent with the new home but that's much better than the thirty seven percent empty runs most companies have the money system seems to be doing well but sometimes a human has to step in. trucks tend to get stuck in traffic which is hard to
7:28 pm
predict the delayed in time tables have to be changed so we have to intervene. the more trucks are guided by the ai system the better the software gets and the more the startup benefits it gets a commission for each suggested tour. on me and the business african see i'm here in a more business news story check out our d w dot com slash business websites. now it's just not a lot. of. what
