LASG Restates Regulation Guilding Operation of Courier/Logistics operations in Lagos 

 

Following the spike in the number of courier/logistics operators in Lagos state without the approved licence, the Lagos State government has explained that the on-going regulation of operational activities of Courier/Logistics companies in the State is not a new Law; but an enforcement of certain aspect of the Lagos State Traffic Law, Year 2012 and other regulations contained in the Transport Sector Reform Law, 2018.

 

The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, on Tuesday explained that the enforcement/regulation of Courier/Logistics operations was in line with the Nigeria Postal Service Act 1992, Regulation 16(3) of Traffic Law, 2012, Section 46 of the Transport Sector Reforms Law (TSRL 2018) as well as the subsisting Government Restriction Order on Motorcycles and Tricycles operations in Six (6) Local Governments and Nine (9) Local Council Development Areas, 11 Highways and 41 Bridges in Lagos.

 

He noted that the laws and the restrictions which exempted the operation of mail distribution and courier services with the written permission of the Ministry as stated in Schedule 1, Section 326, Sub-section 15(3) gave the condition that ‘’every operator must have the required operational documents from NIPOST and register in line with the TSRL, 2018’’, warning that the State Government would frown at any act capable of undermining the on-going reforms in the transport sector.

 

The Commissioner added that the Ministry had on several occasions met with the National Association of Courier Operators and NIPOST on the need to regularize their operational documents by ensuring total compliance with the rules and regulations guiding operation of courier/logistics services in the State. He stated that the deadline of March, 2020 was fixed for full adherence.
