NPA threatens accounts deactivation of non-compliant export trucks on Eto

The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has threatened to deactivate electronic call-up accounts of export trucks that fail to adhere to a new 12-hour operational limit, beginning from 19 June, 2024.

The management of Trucks Transit Parks (TTP) in a statement, noted that the NPA’s new directive has charged all export trucks to ensure that they complete their port activities within a 12-hour window, starting from the moment they enter the terminal until they exit.

It noted that this policy aims to reduce congestion and enhance efficiency at the nation’s ports.

The TTP’s management emphasized that strict enforcement measures would be in place against trucks that violate the 12-hour limit. Sanctions include the deactivation of associated Eto accounts, effectively barring non-compliant trucks from further port access.

The notice also informed that exceptions to this rule would be made only for delays caused by terminal inefficiencies, as the NPA seeks to balance strict enforcement with fairness.

“We wish to inform you of a new directive issued by the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) regarding the operations of export trucks accessing the Port. Effective Wednesday, 19 June, 2024, all export trucks must adhere to a 12-hour window for entering and exiting the Port.

“Trucks that do not comply and their associated Eto accounts will be deactivated as a penalty for this infraction. This new policy aims to improve the Port environment and curb stalling on the port access roads, thereby enhancing overall operational efficiency,” it stated.
