ABTL wins ‘Best Port Terminal Operator Award’ 2018
The Apapa Bulk Terminal Limited has won the Best Port Terminal Operator Award of the Year at the Oil & Gas Lecture Series and Awards in Abuja.
The event tagged, ‘Abuja 2018’ with the theme: ‘Nigeria’s Petroleum Industry Governance Law & Global Investment Opening in the Sector’ was organised by the Institute of Oil and Gas Research & Hydrocarbon Studies in Abuja on Friday.
Speaking on the award, which was presented by the Deputy Chairman, Advisory Board, NIOGRHS, Uko Akpatang, the Managing Director, ABTL, Captain Marvin Abe, said the award represented the fact that the society recognised and appreciated the quality services being rendered by the terminal.
According to him, there are other competitors in the same business, but the ABTL must have been doing something different, which has attracted such a recognition from the institute.
Abe, who dedicated the award to the entire team, said in a statement that the company would not relent in rendering quality services but would continue its expansionary programme in the area of terminal management, cargo consolidation/operations and logistics services.
While congratulating the company, Akpatang said ABTL had demonstrated excellence in rendering services like dry bulk cargo operations; general cargo operations; liquid cargo operations and container services.
The Terminal Manager, ABTL, Akindele Aderemi, said the recognition was well deserved going by the innovation being introduced by the present management of the company.
“Since Captain Abe came on board, the company has been placing strong emphasis on safety among other things. The award will definitely spur us to do more,” he was quoted as saying.
