LASG GIVES TANK FARMS MARCHING ORDER ON CSR, PLANNING PERMIT

Published

on

  • Says enforcement will commence next week

The Lagos State Government on Friday declared that it would by next week commence Physical Planning enforcement on all Tank Farms illegally operating in the State.

The declaration was made by the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako during a meeting in his office in Alausa.

The Commissioner expressed displeasure at the unapproved and illegal operations of many Tank Farms in the State, saying that no such facility should operate without Planning Permit.

He expressed concern over the indiscriminate operations of Tank Farms, which had negatively impacted the host communities and rendered residents helpless.

He says: “In most cases, the road capacity is inadequate for the activities of the Tank Farms whose operations have led to the collapse of road infrastructure, rendered critical social amenities such as school and hospital inaccessible and created urban squalors of the host communities”

Salako stated that the deliberate neglect of host communities by Tank Farms operating in the State, despite unhonoured Government overtures,
was regrettable, especially when viewed against the backdrop of the fact that most of the outfits creating these problems were not only unapproved but also not paying taxes to the Government.

Recall that the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban had met with Tank Farm Operators earlier in the year and gave a week ultimatum for them to regularise their facilities, which was followed by an additional 2- week ultimatum, a month after the first ultimatum.

The Physical Planning Commissioner maintained that there was no going back on the plan to start enforcing the extant Physical Planning laws on all erring Tank Farms as from next week since the ultimatums given had lapsed.

Online shopping has redefined the way we make purchases with shopping and payment done through the internet. In most cases, the only time the customer has human interface is with the delivery agent when packages are delivered. However, a lot of manpower and activities go behind the scene to ensure orders are properly processed and items delivered in good condition. 

A tour led by Adetunji Lanase, Country Manager Jumia Nigeria into one of the biggest Jumia warehouses in Nigeria showed the process items pass through before they are delivered at the doorsteps of customers. From the entry point, it was easy to see that a Jumia warehouse is a place of organized activities.

Though divided into sections, the activities are all connected to produce quality service delivery to customers. Below is a glance through phases and activities in the packaging process:

Inbound area: This is the first section in the chain of goods packaging processing. Working with strict covid-19 guidelines which are maintained across the warehouse, this section receives items to be sold on the Jumia platform from sellers.

Staging area: Being the second phase in the process, this is the intermediate storage area for the items received from sellers. Here, the Jumia team ensures items are arranged and organized according to the warehouse number for easy pickup when orders are placed.

Outflow area: This section is the inventory location where the picker moves to pick the list of orders on queue and scans the items. The item is processed and prepared for packaging before being shipped to the next section in the chain.

Outbound hub: Items need to be protected for the transportation process. While doing this, the impact of packaging is considered by the Jumia team. Here, the team on ground inspects items approved for delivery to ensure they are in good condition. They label the items, and then create a master packaging bag to ensure the items are presented to meet the customer’s aesthetics taste.

Network Hub: The packages are brought to this section for sortation according to the region/destination of the packed items.
