Rotimi Amaechi the Minister of Transportation, has commissioned an Operation Command Centre built by APM Terminals Apapa to boost efficiency and service delivery at the terminal.
The minister was received at the terminal in the Lagos Port Complex by the Nigeria Country Manager of APM Terminals, Mr. Klaus Laursen.
Mr. Klaus Laursen said the new Operation Command Centre would, among others, strengthen the exchange of information and coordination in the movement of containers out of the port.
He said, “The centre is the brain of the business. It is about day-to-day execution where information is exchanged.
“This is where we decide which box to put where, at which time, and the equipment to pick it up so that everything works together.”
Support was pledged for the Federal Government’s drive to achieve a rail transportation system in the movement of cargo out of the port to relieve the roads of traffic congestion by Laursen.
Amaechi said the rail line, when completed, would facilitate the movement of containers out of Apapa Port thereby reducing pressure on the roads.
