SIFAX STEVEDORING LIMITED
As days go by, Sifax Group continues to aspire and move close to putting in place an effective web of comprehensive shipping services for result oriented and cost effective operations. The extensive reform in the shipping and maritime industry in Nigeria created enormous opportunities and challenges in the docklabour department of the industry and Sifax Group has repositioned itself to set the pace in this area, taking advantage of many years experience in stevedoring operations.
The company operates with a dynamic pool of well trained dockworkers, who go the extra mile to maintain the Group’s culture of security and safety, as well as speed and efficiency. The professional workforce is supported by sound and functional equipment base. There are heavy lift cranes, forklifts and other handling gears with advanced capabilities at the disposal of the workers for smooth operations.
Workers’ motivation is given close attention by Sifax Stevedoring, as dockworkers are remunerated by a distinct formula that ensures that workers earn commensurate wages to the services that they render. This, as well as the policy of training and retraining has enhanced productivity of our stevedoring operations.
Management is made up of local and expatriate personnel, who are specially trained on dock operations and supervision. Their rare ability and flexibility to problem solving have earned us unequalled reputation for responsive services.
We run standardized and computerized systems, which has streamlined our internal traffic and operations; the system provides up to the minute status on container movements and this has helped improve speed of cargo handling, while enhancing safety, security and orderly operations.
The addition of ships container software program enables us to increase the efficiency of our operations by allowing stowage planning of container vessels in advance before the arrival of the vessel at the quay. Sifax Stevedoring is situated at the heart of the port, close to our operational base, from where we control the loading and discharge of a wide range of cargoes.
