According to him, “Over the years, we have grown our truck fleet from 55 in 2017 to 102,
our revenue has grown by about 49% while cost of sales have reduced over the
years by about 14%. All these would not have been possible without the input
of the wonderful team I work with. This ceremony as well as the prizes are our
show of appreciation for a job well done and to further motivate the team for a
better performance in the second half of the year”.
Also on queue to commend the drivers was, Bode Ojeniyi, Group Executive Director, SIFAX Group, who applauded the haulage
team for the improved performance over the years, especially in the first half of
the year, in spite of the peculiar challenges in the haulage sector with the bad
roads and gridlock on virtually all the roads in the country. He admonished the
team to aim higher in order to close the business year on a more impressive note.
