Waiting times at Nigeria exceed a month

Lagos in Nigeria continues to suffer extraordinary delays as waiting times at APM Terminals’ Apapa and Bollore Ports’ Tincan Island Container Terminal (TICT) continue to exceed 30 and 20 days, respectively, according to Hapag-Lloyd.

The German shipping carrier has announced the addition of two ships to its MWX service in order to reduce the negative effects. Now, Hapag-Lloyd is deploying a total of seven container vessels to the region.

The Hamburg-based company said that it regularly evaluates the Apapa call on its MIAX service. In case of omission, cargo is discharged at TICT from where cargo is barged to KCT and customs clearance of Apapa cargo is handled there.
