Ports to remain operational for cargo delivery during Easter holidays


The Maritime Task Team on COVID – 19 has said that the ports will be open during the public holidays and weekend from Good Friday April 10, 2020 through Easter Monday April 13, 2020.

The task team which made this known in a statement in Lagos on Wednesday informed freight forwarders and port users that the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and the terminals would operate during the period.

The team therefore urged freight forwarders, logistics providers and shippers to take advantage of this opportunity to take delivery of their cargos out of ports.

“More importantly, freight forwarders are advised to use tomorrow (today) Thursday April 9, 2020 which is the last working day to perfect all documentation processes including shipping company release (DO) and (TDO) from the terminals.

“Only those who are at the point of taking delivery of their goods are expected to be at the ports. Please be guided accordingly”, it said.
