The management of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) on Friday described the introduction of the E-Call-up system as a success, two weeks into its introduction.
A statement issued by the NPA Assistant General Manager, Public Affairs, Ibrahim Nasiru, explained that with the E-Call up system , final solution to congestion has now been found.
According to the statement, the congestion into the access roads of Lagos Port Complex and the Tin Can Island Ports were also taken care of.
Part of the statement read:“Although, we have experienced teething problems as would be expected of innovations like this, the Authority is pleased that these issues are being tackled as they arise, and that steady progress is being made in the process.
“As part of efforts to deepen the impact of Eto and make the movement of trucks more seamless, the Authority, after consultations with stakeholders arrived at the following categorisation of trucks parks as batching points for all trucks doing business at the ports:

“Transporters and truck owners who do not use the approved truck parks based on the categorisation detailed above, would be unable to access the ports.
“While the Authority is working with Nigerian Export Promotion Council to arrive at a more conducive environment for the operation of export cargo owners, the Authority wishes to state that truckers in this category should ensure they complete all documentation required by the Nigerian Customs Service, Terminal Operators and Shipping Lines before approaching the ports. Failure to complete the documentation will be met with denial of access into the ports”, the Authority further stated, and thanked the Lagos State Government, for the commitment to end the truck congestion through enforcement.
“Management is grateful to all stakeholders and associations for their cooperation towards the successful implementation of the regime of reforms and hereby solicits continued support”.
