West Africa Container Terminal Nigeria (WACT) has reportedly received the second largest containership tin it’s terminal.
The 5,042 TEUs containership named Lady Jane operated by OOCL shipping line having a length overall of 294.5 meters, arrived at WACT terminal Onne Port Complex, Rivers State, on Wednesday 13th April, 2022.
The Port Manager of Onne Port, Stanley Magaji Yitnoe, said, “This achievement indicates that container traffic is growing. Last year, container traffic in Onne grew by 31% but with Lady Jane bringing in containers to discharge and to load, including full exports, container traffic is definitely picking up in Onne. We have WACT to thank for that and they are doing far more, as they are about to roll out a Container Freight Station (CFS) with focus on handing agri-commodities, which means more full exports will be loaded out of Onne Port once the CFS resume operations.”
WACT is the first greenfield terminal in Nigeria and is fully owned APM Terminals.
