The announcement was made at today's (20 May 2015) Microlise Transport Conference, held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, before an audience of 1,000 senior industry executives.
Microlise used the event to give Transaid CEO Gary Forster an opportunity to address delegates, at what is believed to be the largest road transport conference ever held in the UK.
Delegates heard how Microlise will use its telematics and transport management expertise to support Transaid projects, with its staff also participating in fundraising activities.
"Having Microlise on board is an exciting development for Transaid," stated Forster.
"Even in the developing world, telematics can play a vital role in helping organisations to monitor the location and status of their transport assets, which has huge benefits in terms of security and safety," he continued.
"We're looking forward to working with Microlise over the coming years and putting their expertise to best use."
In reply, Nadeem Raza, CEO of Microlise, said: "Transaid is a great organisation that carries out essential work within the developing world. [We] are looking forward to getting firmly involved over the coming months."
