The study aims to find out if barges have an impact on tankers discharge operational efficiency in Ijegun – Egba Area. The research population for this study is comprised of Staff members of tank farm operators in Ijegun-Egba Area of Lagos state (the organizations). Primary sources of data collection were used for the study. Responses from the questionnaire administered were presented, analyzed and interpreted by the use of percentages and tables. Based on the findings, the study affirms that the presence or absence of barge integration does not wield a significant influence on the efficiency and productivity of tanker discharge operations. The research demonstrated that there is no substantial disparity in operational delays, ease of operation, accuracy of documentation, and overall time efficiency between scenarios with and without barges integrated into the tanker discharge process. Similarly, the study determined that the safety and environmental aspects of tanker discharge operations in the study area remain largely unaffected by the presence or absence of barge integration. The established safety measures and environmental considerations in the Ijegun-Egba Area appear to be consistent, irrespective of whether barges are incorporated into the process. Moreover, the economic considerations and cost implications of tanker discharge operations in the study area remain stable, regardless of barge integration. The economic performance and associated costs appear to be maintained at similar levels. Lastly, the study concludes that the environment is not significantly impacted by the presence or absence of barge integration in tanker discharge operations.
