Another record for Namport
25 November 2020 | Infrastructure
The ports authority recently recorded 413 truck visits in one day. This is the first of its kind and it reflects directly on the efforts and resources invested by the entity in technology.
The trucks flowed seamlessly through the terminal gates and were either delivering or picking up cargo from the port terminals.
Richard Mutonga Ibwima, the terminals manager at Namport, attributed the increase of truck visits to non-adherence of vessels to the arrival schedule at other ports.
He accredited the achievement to the dedication, teamwork and constant communication among stakeholders who are involved across the value-chain and the timely attendance to all trucks that visited the Port.
“We are currently engaged in a semi-gate automated project that will further improve our efficiencies and better our service offerings to all our port terminal clients. Coupled with better planning we will serve the trucking community optimally.”
The construction of the new container terminal, which was officially inaugurated in August 2019, also required the upgrade of operating systems.
Due to this investment in technology, the truckers can be guaranteed smooth, hassle-free and seamless services.
