APM Commissions new command centre Terminals in Apapa

Leading seaport terminal operator, APM Terminals has commissioned a new operation command centre it built at the Apapa operations to boost efficiency and service delivery.

The commissioning was witnessed by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who graced the occasioned alongside the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Transportation (FMOT), Dr. Magdalene Ajani; Director, Rail and Transport Services, FMOT, Engr. Muhammad Baba-Kobi; Chairman of the Governing Board, Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC), Ibrahim Alhassan Musa; Managing Director, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala Usman and the Managing Director of NRC, Fidet Okhiria; was received at the terminal in the Lagos Port Complex by the Nigeria Country Manager of APM Terminals, Mr. Klaus Laursen.

In his remarks at the flag off of the centre, Laursen said the new Operation Command Centre will, among other benefits, strengthen exchange of information and coordination in the movement of containers out of the port. This, he said, will enhance operational efficiency and provide a better work environment at the terminal.

According to him, “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.”
