The management of ABC Transport PLC has reiterated its commitment to the provision of innovative road transportation and logistics services designed to satisfy the needs of its customers.

The company last week took a look at the road it has travelled in the past 30 years, saying while it has more plans in the offing for the motoring public, it has impacted positively on the sector despite numerous challenges.

The firm described the future as holding endless possibilities.

Speaking on the 30th anniversary, the founder and Managing Director of ABC Transport, Mr. Frank Nneji,  reiterated the company’s policy of  providing excellent and innovative transportation services that meet the needs of its millions of customers in Nigeria and on the Lagos-Accra route.

He said, “We remain committed to providing excellent and innovative transportation services that meet the needs of our customers and are looking forward to the future.

“In commemoration of our 30th anniversary, we have lined up several activities and events, including customer and staff appreciation events that demonstrate our commitment to our customers and the communities we serve.”

ABC Transport commenced operations in Nigeria on February 13, 1993, with two buses, and later procured a loan from then Diamond Bank.

Today, the road transport company has grown to become a household name in the industry, with a fleet of over 500 vehicles and a network of over 60 locations across the country.

It has also expanded its operations to other African countries, such as Ghana, Togo and Benin Republic.

The company was founded in 1993 by. Frank Nneji OON, a visionary entrepreneur on a mission to deliver world-class transportation services to Nigerians.

It was with the two mini buses as trailblazers that Nneji’s vision to revolutionise the transportation industry in Nigeria came to reality.

ABC Transport was the first to establish ultramodern terminals in Nigeria and beyond, thereby enhancing its reputation as a modern and innovative road transport services provider.

On July 16, 2004 with a new state-of-the-art fleet of buses, Coach West Africa was rolled out to offer the most modern coach service in West Africa in addition to enhancing regional integration in the ECOWAS sub-region, in terms of trade, travel and tourism.

The Driver Training Academy, another offshoot founded with a mission to ‘prepare and produce’ for Nigeria’s motoring environment, law-abiding and safety-conscious drivers, graduated its first set of trainees in 2004.

In 2012, ABC ventured into motor vehicle assembly with its 50 per cent stake in Transit Support Services Ltd (TSSL), which is into assembly of heavy and light duty trucks with its flagship brand: Shacman (fire trucks etc.) and Forland Trucks, Asiastar luxury buses and Baw mini buses and ambulances. TSSL offers sales of automotive parts.

Speaking about the future of the company, the Group Head, Innovation & Strategy, Mr Victor Nneji, assured of the company’s resilience to continue to innovate and serve Nigerians and Africans at large.
