I heartily welcome you to our official website. It is my hope that you find the information provided here useful and relevant.

As an agency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria saddled with the responsibility of protecting the interest of Nigerian Shippers, we are resolutely committed to providing adequate and up-to-date trade information to the Nigerian shipper and the international business and shipping community. We have designed this website as a means to ensuring that the shipper is well equipped with every information necessary to doing business competitively in the very dynamic international trade environment. Our new and expanded website provides information on a wide area of trade and shipping interests including Nigeria's trade policies, Ports and Ports Charges, Local Shipping charges and freight rates from and to Nigerian ports. The Customs Matters' section provides import and export guidelines, Cargo Clearance procedure and an exhaustive import/export prohibition list.

Proper documentation is essential for a successful import and export business. The Shippers Corner, a new feature in this website, contains detail documentation procedure related to Form 'M" and Foreign Exchange. There are other items in the Shippers' Corner that will serve as quick reference for the shipper on matters of import and export in Nigeria. We are determined to keep this corner as dynamic and as relevant as it is possible.

If your organisation is interested in accessing the Cargo Defence Fund, you will find the Cargo Defence section informative. Here you will know more about CDF, find detailed eligibility criteria and the procedure for claims.

The current Inland Container Depot (ICD) initiative of the Nigerian Government is also well documented in detail in the ICD section. This section gives you information about the ICD, the approved Concessionaires, locations and ICD current activities.

If you have any suggestions or comments that will enhance this website for better service to you, please send them through [email protected]

Thank you for visiting.
