SIFAX to unveil new truck transit park at Ijora

SIFAX Group, a logistics company in Nigeria, has said it will soon unveil a truck transit park in a bid to help facilitate the electronic call-up system.

A Corporate Communication Officer at SIFAX, Philip Ojo, in a statement on Monday, said the company had also injected 25 new trucks to boost its operations. 

According to the statement, the General Manager, Haulage of SIFAX, Adewale Adetayo, said the investment was aimed at improving the capacity to meet the expectations of its growing client base.

Adetayo said the truck transit park would help facilitate the e-call-up system being championed by the Nigerian Ports Authority.

“We will soon be converting our empty container depot at Ijora to a truck transit park, which would help the movement of our trucks in and out of the Apapa and Tin Can Island ports,” he said.

He said, “Last year, we added 25 trucks to bring the total number in our fleet to 100. Despite this, we still couldn’t meet the increasing demands of our customers”

“The new trucks will help the company cope with these ever-rising orders from customers. The plan is to take delivery of these new trucks before the end of the first half of the year and take the size of our fleet to 125.”
