A leading technology company specializing in mobility solutions, Trucks Transit Parks (TTP) Limited, is marking its third year of operations.

As part of this, the firm is reflecting on the significant impact it has made in the maritime and logistics industry.

TTP, since its inception to revolutionize the maritime and logistics sector in Nigeria through truck mobility solutions powered by technology, has emerged as a key player in driving port terminal efficiency, reducing traffic congestion, and creating new business opportunities within the Apapa port economic zone.

“Our third anniversary of operations provides us an opportunity to reflect on how far we have come in breaking the barriers to tech adoption in maritime and logistics, but also on the vast opportunities in the industry that are yet untapped,” the co-founder and Managing Director of TTP, Mr Jámà Ọnwụbụarịrị, stated.

Nigeria’s social and economic challenges present a fertile ground for innovation, and TTP has seized the opportunity to leverage technology to address these challenges.

With products like Ètò, an electronic truck call-up solution used to manage truck movement between various controlled facilities, and the recently launched Tafiyah, an online marketplace designed for the transportation of cargo; TTP has not only eased congestion but also provided solutions that maximize business opportunities for stakeholders while reducing carbon emissions and improving efficiency.

“Lagos State’s status as the tech hub of Africa is a testament to the talent and potential within our borders. We believe technology and innovation can transform Nigeria into an economic powerhouse in the mid-term,” Mr Ọnwụbụarịrị added.

TTP recognizes the importance of strategic partnerships with both private and public sector players in the maritime, infrastructure, and technology subsectors. These partnerships will enable TTP to deepen its value-adding services and contribute further to the growth and development of the industry.

“We are committed to actively seeking strategic partnerships with stakeholders across various sectors to drive innovation and create sustainable solutions,” he further disclosed.

As part of its commitment to innovation, TTP is also awaiting government approval to deploy for the Apapa and Tincan ports, its latest innovations, including Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID)/E-tags and the E-Callup Interchange Transaction Number (EITN), which will help to streamline truck movements within Lagos ports, improve security & access control as well as prevent illegal criss-crossing of trucks between terminals. These innovations are poised to further ease truck mobility challenges and enhance efficiency within the industry.

“Nigeria’s strategic location along the west coast of Africa makes us a maritime hub, and with the right initiatives and partnerships, we have the potential to unlock even greater opportunities,” Mr Ọnwụbụarịrị concluded.
