NPA raises hope on electronic call-up system 


Nigerian Ports Authority

As the port operators celebrate the take-off of the truck electronic call-up system, the Managing Director of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala Usman, has assured port users that the irresponsible parking of trucks on the access roads would soon be a thing of the past.
Usman gave the assurance after leading a stakeholders’ facility assessment audit of the Truck Transit Park (TTP) at Lilypond, Ijora, Lagos.
The tour was to ascertain the degree of preparedness by the park towards the full commencement of the e-call up system later in the month. 
The NPA boss 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 “we must put an end to the intractable Apapa traffic to restore sanity to cargo operations at our ports.”
Bala Usman said ‘Eto’ would introduce transparency and orderliness to truck movement as scheduling is done automatically on a first-come, first-serve basis. 
She commended TTP LTD for the renovations carried out at the Lilypond Truck Transit Park facility.
Chief Operating Officer, TTP LTD Management, Temidayo Adeboye, assured truck owners and drivers of quality service delivery at the facility. He demonstrated the functionality of ‘Eto’.
