We are building Africa’s integrated truck mobility solution city by city. As a tech company, we believe complex problems can be solved using technology as the foundation of all operation concern. So, when it comes to solving mobility and truck traffic issues, we developed a truck callup application to connect existing physical infrastructure, thereby creating order and visibility for operators and regulators within the respective industry sectors we operate.
To use technology to solve mobility problems across the African continent, adopting speed, efficiency and professionalism
To use technology as a driving factor for solving day-to-day problems (transportation enablement currently the focus)
Our DNA is S.P.I.N
While in a protracted traffic jam during a road trip through Benin bypass, Edo State, the Founders discussed gating of stationary trucks across Nigeria and releasing them based on scheduled business needs. They also discussed immediately engaging stakeholders to translate the research into a service.
The Founders of the Company, Mr Jama Onwubuariri and Mrs Jama Onwubuariri (Nee Ivory Jacobs), commenced research into truck parking regulation in Nigeria. They also visited rest stops along the Autobahn in Germany, between Berlin and Munich in September 2013.
The Founders invited Mr Kalu Kalu and Mobolaji Ogunlende, to join them in setting up Trucks Transit Parks Ltd. The company further engaged with various stakeholder groups – the Nigerian Shippers Council, the transport unions, Lagos, Ogun, and Oyo state governments and the Federal Ministry of Transportation – on deploying the Company’s solutions to boost the truck-based haulage economy in the Country.
The founders engaged the services of Mr Benedict Unaegbunam, a partner with Dentons-ACAS Law, as a legal, commercial and strategic advisor on the project.

- The Company was invited by the Nigerian Shippers Council and the Federal Ministry of Transportation to participate in the Nigerian Government’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan. (ERGP). The 6-week intensive program was the Government’s attempt at fast-tracking projects with high potential socio-economic impact. Out of 18 entrants of the program with truck traffic solution projects, TTP was one of the 3 companies approved by the program consultants as feasible and deploy-ready.
- The Company was then invited by the Oyo State Government to convert its moribund bus terminal into a truck park and was approved by the Oyo state government as its joint venture partner for the project.
- The Company began engaging the Ogun state government for partnership in developing a logistics hub in Ogere/Shagamu and rehabilitating the Government’s moribund truck parks.
- The Office of the Vice President also wrote to the Ogun state government to support TTP’s proposed project on the back of the ERGP report.
- We commenced negotiations with transport unions to collaborate on managing truck traffic across Nigeria. The promoters developed version 1 of the electronic portal, Ètò, for truck traffic management through its affiliate, Truck Tech Platform Ltd. The portal was then demonstrated to various stakeholders, including the Nigerian Shippers Council, the Nigerian Ports Authority and some terminal operators.
- The Company responded to the Nigerian Ports Authority’s public proposal for the development and use of truck-holding bays to manage port-bound truck traffic.
- The Company proposed to the Nigerian Ports Authority to manage its port-bound traffic using a combination of parking facilities and an electronic traffic management platform.
The Company began a series of engagements with the Nigerian Ports Authority to deploy the Company’s electronic portal for integrated management of port-bound truck traffic.
- The Company proposed to the Lagos State Government to partner with the government in resolving the Apapa truck traffic gridlock and general management of truck traffic in the State.
- Mr Temidayo Adeboye and Mr Matthew Adewale joined the Company as operations and financial resources and contributed to further packaging the Company’s project for clients and investors.
- The Company was selected by the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) as the preferred bidder for the management of the NPA’s Lilypond Truck Park and the operation of the electronic truck call-up system.

Our stakeholders are the core of our business as their contribution/impact sustains the business.
Port Terminal Operators
All terminal operators need to register on the Ètò platform by creating a profile.
Clearing agents are responsible for clearing port consignment/cargos thus all clearing agents are expected to register their profile on the platform to enable them book trucks.
All truck owners should register trucks that will be used for maritime business on the platform. Each truck owner will create a profile on the platform and subsequently register their trucks.
A union needs to ensure that its members are registered on the platform, and that they indicate the union they belong to in the registration process. The Union must enforce compliance of the integrated traffic management process by their members.
