Bad Road: Nigerian Shippers’ Council calls for suspension of demurrage

Mr. Hassan Bello, Executive Secretary, Nigerian Shippers Council

The Nigerian Shippers’ Council has called for the suspension of demurrage from shippers by shipping lines and terminal operators because of bad roads.

Executive Secretary NSC, Mr. Hassan Bello said the terrible condition of the roads has made it impossible for shippers to clear goods from terminals within the 3 days allowed as well as return empty containers within 4 days.

‘’The condition of the roads has resulted in a standstill traffic around the ports thereby frustrating the ability of the shippers to perform their obligations,’’ said Hassan Bello in  statement issued by the organisation.
