Petroleum tanker drivers have grounded operations at the Calabar port bringing port and businesses to a halt at the Calabar Export Processing Zone, EPZ, following indiscriminate parking while waiting to load petroleum products from over 10 numerous tank farms around and within the EPZ.
The situation at the moment has become so frustrating that port users, visitors and residents around the area spend between 30 minutes to two hours to get to the port or the EPZ, a journey of less 10 minutes before now.
When Vanguard Maritime Report visited the EPZ premises, there were about several tank farms located within the zone. Despite the huge potentials of the port to serve, not just the state and the neighbouring states, but also north eastern states, business activities have remained very low because of the low channel leading to the port.
