Road accidents can be prevented to a large extent by regular monitoring and control of driver movements through government approved trucking devices as grey market devices have security risks.

However, due to illegal and unauthorized tracking devices being freely bought and sold in the market, on the one hand, the government is deprived of revenue, as well as the customers are not getting proper service.

Managing Director of BDCom Online Limited and President of Vehicle Tracking Service Providers Association of Bangladesh (VTSPAB) SM Golam Farooq Alamgir said this at a press conference on the anniversary of BDCOM Online Limited and Concox Information Technology Co. held at a city hotel in the capital on Monday. 

He strongly demanded to make government approved vehicle tracking system mandatory in all types of vehicles. 

Regional Sales Director (Southeast Asia) of Concox Information Technology Co. Melody Chan visited Bangladesh on the occasion of anniversary celebration and press conference. During this visit, she met with media workers, concerned stakeholders.

In the press conference, Melody Chan stressed on the need for vehicle tracking in road accident prevention, supply chain management, cold chain management, business development and the use of devices brought by authorized distributors of BTRC through legitimate channels.

She expressed concern about the gray market of these devices. She thinks that grey market devices have security risks. These VTS coming through legitimate channels or distributors will keep customers and buyers safe. 

In the press conference, Executive Director of BDCom Online and Company Secretary AKM Qutb Uddin, Chief Technology Officer S. M. Kamruzzaman, Chief Financial Officer Faker Ahmed, Chief Strategic Officer Gazi Jihadul Kabir, Chief Information Officer Anwar Hasan and other senior officers and respected resellers of BDCom were present.
