Regulation of activities of Courier/Logistics businesses explained by lagos ; Lagos State Government (LAGS) has come out to explain through the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde that the on-going regulation of operational activities of Courier/Logistics companies is not a new Law but an enforcement of certain aspects of the year 2012 Lagos State Traffic Law and other regulations as contained in the Transport Sector Reform Law, 2018

The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, made the clarification on Tuesday in Alausa, while responding to concerns raised on social media that the State Government has embarked on the illegal seizure of dispatch motorcycles.  Oladeinde emphasised that sequel to the restriction order, the State Government observed a sudden spike in the number of courier/logistics operators in the State, especially after the lockdown. After thorough investigations conducted by the Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, revealed that many commercial motorcycles had been converted to courier services without the proper documentation and registration with the appropriate authority

He observed that the laws which exempted the operations of mail distribution and courier services with the written permission of the Ministry, stipulated that “every operator must have the required operational documents from NIPOST and must be properly  register in line with the TSRL, 2018”

Oladeinde averred that the one-month ultimatum given by the State Government for regularization of documents was enough for any serious operator to fully comply as required by the Law
