SIFAX Group has assured Nigerian farmers willing to export their agricultural produce of its readiness to support them.

This pledge was made by the SIFAX Group management team at a farmers’ conference in Dubai.

Executive Director, Compliance, SIFAX Group, Mariam Afolabi, who represented Barr. (Dr.) Taiwo Afolabi, Group Executive Vice Chairman, who was the guest speaker at the conference, said the company has the capacity, experience, equipment and workforce, to help them export their goods either through the sea or air.

She noted that there are not many organizations in the country that offer a bouquet of services across the logistics value chain. 

“What that means is that whatever the logistics needs of our clients, whether basic or complex, right from the point of origin to point of delivery, we have developed the capacity to attend to such demands. 

“This has given us a lot of leverage with our clients as we take the stress off them. They just sign into our comprehensive package, instead of engaging different agencies and companies to handle different services. This has entrenched our company in the logistics industry as a leading player.” she said.

On his part, Group Managing Director, SIFAX Group, Adekunle Oyinloye, who was one of the panelists at the conference, explained that the group has invested in the right mix of human and equipment to enable it meet the expectations of its clients. 

“At both the seaport and airport, we have positioned the company as the first choice for all exporters in Nigeria. We have a long list of clients we service and also have exported produce to almost all countries in the world. 

“At the airport, SAHCO Plc has the best warehouse in West Africa and also has strong partnerships with world major international airlines. At the seaport, shipping lines from across the world such as MSC, MOL and others call our terminal which has four berths and located at Tin Can Island”, he said.
