WACT launches digital platform to aid cargo movement
Oct 26, 2016: In a bid to enables their customers to have better control over their cargo’s movement, the West Africa Container Terminal (WACT), operated by APM Terminals at the Port of Onne, has launched an online terminal services platform. The digital platform will help optimise logistics operations by providing real-time visibility into the status of cargo within the container terminal. It will also provide customers with an option of selecting the needed terminal services and book and pay online from their own office, rather than coming to the terminal. These new services will help companies that handle the cargo movement throughout Nigeria operate more effectively and efficiently. Upon signing up, customers will have access to three core features: visibility into the movement of their cargo; support in getting their container in or out of the terminal at timings of their convenience; and online order and pay services. Additional services will be added to the platform based on customer demand.
