Speaking at an event on Monday 1st of May 2023 to launch a new arm of Kiti Energy Consulting Limited which is the “Kiti Energy Logistics” in Apapa Lagos, Managing Director of the firm, Mr James Kitiya appreciated the awardees for their contributions and support for the organization towards it’s growth and development over the years.
Speaking on the expansion plan of the company into port and aviation logistics, he said the firm has aquired new buses for easy movement of equipment and spare parts around the airports and seaport.
“Our bus is strictly for Port uses and aviation, only the airport and seaport is where it is used. From here, we would escalate to Ghana, we are already established our branch at Cotonou Port.
Speaking on what inspired the new department he said “When we got an offer from Lekki Deep Seaport, we are one of their best consultants on equipment, they gave us a contract of three months to supply equipment within the port, pending when their new equipment would arrive, we did it successfully and our contract ended last two months.
After that, they gave us another one month when their crane came into the port
“So, having this four months experience with Lekki Port, we discovered that the distance from the port to the town, you have to use taxi and hire vehicles. This is what opened our eyes to the fact that there is need for a logistics business in and around the port and aviation”
“If you look at our buses, there are no seats inside, this is because it is strictly for carrying spare parts and other equipment into and out of the ports. Lekki Port has opened our eyes to many opportunities in the port.
“Now you can clear your spare parts, and take it into any of the ports.
“We work with SIFAX Group, PTML, APM Terminals among others. We have experts in training, aviation and underwater operations” Kitiya said
Speaking on the award for Daily Trend Media, Kitiya said “We have to Honor Daily Trend Media because of their consistency in broadcasting of maritime news and information which has been beneficial to the growth of our company and maritime sector in general.
