Alhaji Umaru Abdul Mutallab, Chairman, EMOG

Leveraging an excellent, longstanding working relationship with renowned shipping lines – Cosco and CMA CGM – EMOG Bonded Terminal has emerged as one of the most patronised and the busiest off dock container warehousing facilities in the Nigerian shipping industry.

Located less than a hundred metres away from Ijora Causeway, the terminal seats on a 27000 square metres of concrete floor. It has a capacity for six thousand (6000) TEU, both cargo laden and empty containers. There is a fully equipped groupage warehouse, a stuffing warehouse for cash crops, for which EMOG has carved a niche as the largest off-dock stuffing facility in Nigeria.

By this fact, EMOG is unarguably the largest off-dock container terminal in the Lagos shipping axis. The terminal’s reefer storage facility is of world standards and is strategically available for the well known Ijora-Liverpool fishing industry and other importers of dangerous or perishable goods.

The terminal boasts of two Reach Stackers and one empties handler. It is noteworthy that another brand new 55 tonnage Reach Stacker is on the way, and will be delivered to the terminal in due course.

EMOG Terminals is duly licensed by the Nigerian Ports Authority and the Nigeria Customs Service. The terminals boast of a well-equipped customs office kilted with the latest ASYCUDA/NICIS II tools. As an adjunct of Tincan Island Customs Command, the customs office is headed by an Assistant Comptroller of Customs as the Officer in Charge (OC), ably assisted by thoroughbred customs officers.
