Mar 16, 2017: The city of Lagos hosted logistics and transport professionals with Multimodal West Africa 2017 (MMWA) exhibition and conference, which took place at the Landmark Event Centre on Victoria Island from March 14 to 16.

Some of the key players that exhibiting at MMWA include Sifax Group, DSV, St. John Logistics, Nigeria Ports Authority, Nigeria Railways Corporation, NIMASA, IAL Nigeria Limited, KSP Shipping Logistics, Chibyke Global Systems Limited, African Atlantic International Agencies Limited, Inland Containers Nigeria, Chartered Institute of Transport & Logistics, Association of Nigeria Licensed Custom Agents, etc.

Timothy Zalanga, director corporate planning, representing the Nigeria Railway Corporation, stated, “The Federal Government in its determination to revive and modernize the railway system in line with the 25 year strategic vision, adopted a systematic dual approach of implementation.”

He also indicated that the rehabilitation entails the entire existing narrow gauge lines simultaneously with the development of standard gauge lines which will link the seaports, airports and cargo terminals. “The development of the rail system will provide a cheaper, safer and more reliable means of transportation. It will offer the economy a better alternative to road transportation of goods and heavy freight going to far destinations, he added.”

Other key industry bodies supporting MMWA include the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) Nigeria while the Nigeria Ports Authority is the event patron.

More than 80 exhibitors are expected, including freight forwarders, ship owners, shipping lines, ports & terminal operators as well as official government bodies.
