Samport specialises in developing and tailoring payment solutions for the taxi industry. Existing customers include Taxi Stockholm and Taxi Helsinki.

The ambition is to deliver a total of 2,700 terminals and associated payment solutions to Trønder Taxi, Drammen Taxi, Taxisentralen AS (Fredrikstad og Sarpsborg) and Hurum og Røyken Taxi, amongst others.

“In a taxi, it is more important than it is in many other places that payments work as they should and are quick and easy. Thanks to the close collaboration with Structab, we have now been able to deliver the dependable payment solution that ITF and their members have long been looking for. We are all very pleased with this,” says Mikael Hedlöf, CEO of Samport.

The payment solution is closely integrated with the MegTax taximeter platform, developed and supplied by Structab.

“Samport is a supplier that has a good knowledge of payment procedures in the taxi industry. Combined with the Structab taximeter platform, we now have a payment solution that's ready for the present and equipped for the future. Both drivers and customers are insistent that payment in the taxi are smooth. Our new payment solution will live up to this demand,” says Grethe Pedersen, MD of ITF.

In April, the first part of this collaboration will begin with the installation of around 1,000 terminals in the vehicles of Trønder Taxi, Drammen Taxi, Taxisentralen AS (Fredrikstad og Sarpsborg) and Hurum og Røyken Taxi. The next stage will begin in autumn.
