Corona Virus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered virus. The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces. One can be infected by breathing in the virus if one is within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then one’s eyes, nose or mouth.
The outbreak of the Corona Virus, Covid-19 pandemic has indeed dealt a hard blow on the physical, social and economic activities around the globe. Consequently, our dear country is not left out.
As all of the UN bodies in Nigeria are working closely together, to ensure that the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic is effective, and saves as many lives as possible, Josepdam Port Services (JPS), a terminal operator located in Tin Can Island, Apapa donates Sixty Million Naira (#60,000,000) as a support to the Federal Government in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
JPS commends the effort of the Federal Government in this period of global crisis and believes this is the time when we all need to play our parts to fight this pandemic together. We promise to always look out for areas where our business and people can be utilized to further support all efforts of the government during this trying time.
We urge everyone to strictly adhere to the safety guidelines as advised by The World Health Organization (WHO) and The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) as we work together to flatten this curve in the fight against the outbreak.
JPS is one of the leading terminals in Nigeria, with three berths totaling 484 meters in length. JPS is the terminal operator of Tin Can Terminal A, that was successful in 2006 to gain concession agreement with Nigerian Ports Authority.
JPS diversified it’s operation by receiving, handling, storing and warehousing of cargoes including bulk, general, breakbulk and project cargoes. With three berths of 13.5 meters in depth, we are able to accommodate vessels up to 45,000 metric tonnes.
