Logistics Process made easy with Barge Operations in Nigeria

Starting from the basics, what is a barge? A barge is a type of vessel used for carrying cargoes (also known as goods).

In Nigeria, the largest and commonly used ports are the ports located in Lagos State. They are the Lagos Port Complex, also referred to as Premiere Port (Apapa Quays) and the Tin-Can Island Port. These two ports are facing congestion due to the high influx of cargoes that are received there daily.

Difficulties are faced evacuating cargoes from the Lagos ports and it can take an average of six to ten weeks for trucks to get in and out of the ports to take the cargoes to their destination.

Why barge?

Barge is a cost and time effective means of transporting your cargoes. Due to congestion faced at the Lagos Ports, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has encouraged the use of barges for the evacuation of cargoes.

With our barge operation, your goods are directly moved from the Lagos Ports to our Lekki jetty and then to your warehouse. The longer your goods spend at the Ports the more costs you incur.
