Cargo boss calls for cooperation among freighters
Mainland Cargo Options Limited, an indigenous cargo and freight-forwarding firm, has called on stakeholders in the aviation industry to work together for the progress of all operators.
The General Manager, Mainland Cargo Options Limited, Ms. Shakeelah Naransamy expressed her company’s readiness to partner with other stakeholders in moving the industry forward.
She advocated for fairness and openness in the dealings of members so that sharp practices and other unwholesome acts being perpetrated by un-registered and un-licensed operators will be minimized to save the genuine ones from ridicule.
Naransamy made the call during recent courtesy visit on the leaderships of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Cargo Agents (ANLCA) and the Nigerian Association of Air Freight Forwarders & Consolidators (NAFFAC) at their various secretariats in Lagos.
According to her: “I have come as a partner in progress to join hands with you and others in moving the cargo business forward and we will do our best to ensure that our customers are offered the best available services”.
Also, the Chairman of ANLCA, Lagos chapter, Aloysius Igwe commended the firm for its initiative despite being a new entrant and pledged his association’s unflinching support. He however added that for the Company to enjoy all the available privileges accruable to members, it must register with the association and be a paid up member.
Speaking also, the Chairman, NAFFAC, Lagos chapter, Alade Shabi, expressed profound appreciation for the visit. “We look forward to working with you and it is our hope that this rapport will continue for the good of all of us”, he said.
