About BUA Ports & Terminals.

BUA Ports and Terminals Limited, a subsidiary of BUA Group was incorporated on 28 March 2006. The Company is the concessionaire for the Port Harcourt Terminal ‘B’ of the Nigeria Ports Authority, NPA. This was after a highly competitive bidding process under the Public Enterprise (Privatization and Commercialization) Act No. 28 of 1999.

As terminal operators, BUA Ports & Terminals Ltd have the mandate to profitably and efficiently manage the four (4) berths in the terminal, Berths 5-8 which it has creditably done thus far.

The essence of the concession was to improve port logistics efficiency in terms of berthing of vessels, cargo discharge, storage and delivery.

This underscores the need for the terminal operator to invest in equipment and terminal capital development.
