NPA to sanction shipping coys, terminal operators over non-compliance to holding bays

 The authority in change of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has threatened to sanction shipping companies and terminal operators over non-compliance to agreement on holding bays.


It said very stiff sanction and penalties awaited all erring shipping companies and terminal operators that refused to play by the rules.

The   agreement, which   was   reached   in November   2017 between   the shipping companies, terminal operators and the NPA, compelled all shipping companies and terminal operators to provide holding bays for their trucks and containers through the newly adopted call-up system. 


These were part of the resolutions adopted at the end of two meetings between   the   Managing   Director   of NPA,   Hadiza   Bala   Usman,   and the leadership of truck drivers and Maritime Workers Union in response to recent protests by truck drivers at the Lagos Port Complex (LPC) and Tin Can Island Port (TCIP).

A statement issued by the NPA signed by Isah  Suwaid, Assistant  Gen. Manager, Corporate Communication on behalf of the general manager states; the “Managing Director informed the meeting on Wednesday (11th July, 2018) that   the   authority   has   launched   an   investigation   into   the   level   of compliance or non-compliance to the agreements reached between the authority,   shipping   companies   and   terminal   operators. 

It warned that “Any   company   found   to   have   contravened   this   agreement   will   be sanctioned”.

 He said on the newly   adopted   call-up   system   for   trucks   accessing   the   port, Hadiza Usman explained that the authority had consulted widely with all stakeholders   before   the   introduction   of   the   system,   adding   that   the system has proved to be the most effective way of managing traffic in the Apapa axis till date.
