Is it just me on the port congestion in Lagos right now is Crazy!
My clearing agent is usually the best so i know for a fact it's not him. "The ports in Lagos are congested" they say! But my question is why would customs keep allowing more and more ships to dock, if they know there's no space for them to offload!
Everyday is the same story, "the ship is here, but it can't offload". My shipments take exactly 2 weeks to get to nigeria and that has never failed! NEVER! But the offloading and clearing process here in Nigeria is almost taking longer than the shipping period itself! Why?
So i took it upon myself to go to the Apapa/Tincan port by private boat to check things out for myself! As you all know, my customers DESERVE THE BEST so i go extreme lengths for them. I wanted to get the story first hand from the ports myself!
Below are some, when i say some, i mean only a few pictures of what the "congestion" looks like!
Anyone else has similar experience, Pls share.
