The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has ordered the immediate suspension of truck processing through virtual parks on its eto platform.

Head of Operations of the Truck Transit Park Ltd (TTP) Irabor Akonoman, who disclosed this in Lagos on Wednesday, said the suspension was part of the ongoing efforts to streamline and optimise the operational processes of the platform.

He said, “Therefore, the operation of all virtual parks on the eto platform is halted effective immediately and shall remain so until further notice. All trucks arriving at the ports shall have emanated from an NPA-approved physical truck park, pre-gate, or export processing terminal without exception.

“Kindly note that all categories, including reefer containers and fish trucks, will continue to have unhindered access to the port but will go through an approved park before coming to the ports. This directive might warrant adjustments in stakeholders operations. We seek your cooperation and understanding.

“Your cooperation and understanding during this period of evaluation and adjustment are greatly appreciated, as we collectively work towards improving and enhancing the efficiency of our port operations.”
