NAGAFF Applauds Shippers Council Over ICDs, Truck Parks

Freight forwarders in the country have expressed their readiness to work towards the success of the various projects being championed by the Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC) to facilitate trade in the country.

President of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF), Chief Eugene Nweke, who applauded the current moves to effect the establishment of Inland Container Depots (ICDs) and Truck Parks in the country by the Shippers Council, said such efforts would go a long way in addressing many trade obstacles being faced by importers.

He said the current nightmare being suffered in the ports, particularly in Lagos terminals, has made it necessary for the establishment of  ICDs, adding that Truck Parks were necessary as places where drivers can park and rest while on a journey to deliver cargoes.

He, however, pointed out that the biggest problem for the success of ICDs was the issue of ineffective rail system linking the ports in the country.
