Operators Urge Exporters and Importers to Utilize Standard Rail Line for Cargo


APM Terminals Apapa has initiated an awareness campaign encouraging importers and exporters to use the standard gauge rail line for cargo transportation. The campaign included a rail trip from Ebute Metta rail station in Lagos to Moniya Freight Yard in Ibadan, with about 20 customers participating.


David Abbey, inland sales manager for APM Terminals Nigeria, highlighted the critical role of rail in facilitating trade and enhancing business operations. He explained that the rail service from APM Terminals Apapa to Moniya in Ibadan connects effectively to the North, offering safety, faster turnaround times, and improved reliability for cargo exchange.


Adetunji Igbaugba, market and commercial intelligence manager for APM Terminals Nigeria, urged importers and exporters to take advantage of the standard gauge rail line for efficient container delivery to and from Ibadan. He emphasised the substantial space and facilities available at Moniya Freight Yard, which include an 8,000 square meter area and a 4,000 square meter warehouse for container operations.


Jedson Nwankwo, executive director of Bueno Logistics Limited, noted that the Moniya Freight Yard, comprising two terminals operated by Diamond Star and Bueno Logistics, is well-equipped to handle numerous containers. Bhagu Vasnani, director of Primlaks Nigeria Ltd’s Logistics Division, praised APM Terminals for organising the rail trip and expressed commitment to optimising the use of the standard gauge rail line and Moniya Freight Yard.
