In preparation to the 27th February Etó e-call up take off, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority, Ms Hadiza Bala-Usman, led other stakeholders to inspect the Truck Transit Park (TTP), Lillipond.
it is 12 days to the official launch of Ètò — the electronic call-up system that organises port bound trucks from their originating points to Approved Truck Parks, then to a Pre-Gate from where they are programmed on a first-come-first-served basis to access the Ports.
To access the Ports, transporters, cargo owners and clearing agents must download and register on the Ètò app as they can only book trucks registered on the Ètò platform and also parked in the Approved Truck Parks.
The management of the Authority solicits the cooperation of transporters, truck drivers, cargo owners, clearing agents shipping companies and all port users in the implementation of the project, which will bring order and sanity to the ports access roads.
The NPA also warned that non-compliance to the use of Eto and its guidelines will result in denial of access into the Ports, impounding of trucks and withdrawal of registration/operating license.
All trucks doing business at the ports will be required to park at the approved truck parks until they are called up into the port through the Eto app.
The Eto app will be responsible for the scheduling, entry & exit of all trucks into the ports with effect from 27th Feb. 2021 pic.twitter.com/TAekOMg6GM
