EUROPE/NIGERIA CARRIERS STOP LAGOS SURCHARGE
Shipping lines of the Europe West Africa Trade Agreement have suspended their port congestion surcharge for shipments to the port of Lagos, Nigeria.
The member lines of the conference said that they are experiencing an improvement in the situation in Lagos. The surcharge was 395 euro ($440) per 20-foot container.
However, the Europe West Africa Trade Agreement carriers will continue to apply a port surcharge for the Nigerian ports of Onne and Port Harcourt, saying that there have been no improvements there.
The carriers of the Europe West Africa Trade Agreement are Maersk Sealand, its sister company Safmarine, Nile Dutch Africa Line, P&O Nedlloyd and West-Afrika Linien-Dienste.
