As the Nigerian port community anticipates the take off of the truck electronic call-up system recently deployed by the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), the Managing Director of the NPA, Hadiza Bala-Usman has assured port users that the irresponsible parking of trucks on the port access roads would soon be a thing of the past.

The NPA Managing Director gave the assurance after leading a stakeholders’ facility assessment audit of the Truck Transit Park (TTP) at Lilypond, Ijora – Lagos, recently.

The tour of the park facility was to ascertain the degree of preparedness by the park towards the formal take off of the e-call up system later in the month.

The NPA Managing Director reiterated that the truck electronic call-up system which is being powered by a web application called “Eto”, would put an end to the perennial logjam caused by articulated trucks within the port corridor.

She stressed that “it is critical we put an end to the intractable Apapa traffic to restore sanity to cargo operations at our ports in Lagos”.

Hadiza stated that the web application (Eto) will enthrone transparency, orderliness to truck movement as scheduling is done automatically – on first come, first serve, basis.

The NPA boss also commended TTP LTD for the renovations carried out at the Lilypond Truck Transit Park facility.

On their part, TTP LTD Management led by Mr. Temidayo Adeboye – Chief Operating Officer, assured truck owners and drivers of quality service delivery at the facility. He later demonstrated the functionality of the Eto app – to the delight of the visiting delegation.

It would be recalled that NPA Management had earlier solicited the co-operation of stakeholders on the roll out of Eto, designed to compliment the drive for a business friendly and secured environment for port business in Nigeria.

This information was disseminated yesterday via a press release signed by Mr. Ibrahim Nasiru, Asst. General Manager Corporate & Strategic Communications at NPA.
