By Moses Nosike

The Managing Director of the ground handling firm of Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc, NAHCO, Mr. Norbert Bielderman, has said the aviation company controls 80% of the local and 90% of the international cargo handling market in Nigeria.

Addressing Aviation reporters in Lagos, Bielderman said the local airlines that NAHCO aviance does not handle are Arik and Med-View Airlines, noting that it has not lost its Ethiopian Airlines cargo handling to competition.

According to him, “The only viable international airlines we do not handle is South African Airways and Etihad.”
Bielderman further said nahco aviance did not lose the ground handling contract with Ethiopian Airlines to competition explaining that the airline has a global general sales service agent (GSSA) agreement with DHL.

“We did not lose Ethiopian Airlines (ET) cargo to competition. ET has GSSA agreement with DHL. What this means is that all cargoes on ET are being handled by DHL on behalf of ET Cargoes.

Before now however, due to very low business volume, a competitor rented out a considerable portion of its under-utilised warehouse to DHL Cargo to its warehouse its (DHL) shipments.
