LAGOS—THE Nigerian Shippers’ Council, NSC, is holding a one-day meeting with its stakeholders on the operations of the Kaduna Dry Port.
The meeting, which is expected to focus on the processes of documentation of the Kaduna bound cargoes, obligations of terminal operators and shipping companies, would hold on Thursday at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The meeting would equally look at the expected roles of other stakeholders in ensuring the smooth operations of the facility and how best to successfully operationalise the Kaduna Dry Port.
The 5,000TEU inland ports being facilitated by the NSC is an intermodal terminal directly connected by road or rail to a seaport and operating as a centre for the shipment of the cargoes to inland destination.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari recently commissioned the Kaduna Inland Dry Port for the commencement of full operations at the Dry Port.
