Apapa inaugurates Operations Command Centre

APM Terminals Apapa now has a new operations command centre, recently inaugurated by Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi. He was accompanied by the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority, Ms. Hadiza Bala-Usman

apapa-command-centre-inaugurationFitted with 20 units of 55-inch TV wall screens, the centre receives real time visual updates of quay moves, deliveries, truck movements in and out the port gate and the terminal gate.
Country Manager, APM Terminals Nigeria, Klaus Laursen, says, “The centre would among other benefits strengthen exchange of information and coordination among staff in the movement of containers out of the port.

“It is the brain of the business and concerns the 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. It will also help you to know where a container is and allocate a piece of equipment to lift the container. That is what the centre set up will help do.  

“It gives virtually a better opportunity to collaborate and will help in information sharing among staff. It will also provide space for social distancing because of COVID-19 pandemic and there will be every opportunity for communication.”

Faster customer access to cargo

“We are targeting about 700 deliveries per day and would like to double that. So, we need stronger delivery capabilities so the importers and the exporters in Nigeria can get faster access to their cargo and at possibly at a cheaper rate.”
