We would like to inform you that, with the effective load late (Bill of Lading date) of January 1, 2018, it will become mandatory for all inbound cargo destined to Nigeria to be palletized.
Exceptions, cargo types that do not need palletization:
By weight: Any single item weighing more than 1000 kg
By mobility: Any item that can be “rolled” out of the container e.g. a car.
By packing of container: If the stuffing allows a person to walk inside the container to inspect the goods.
By fragility: Any item that is deemed to be too fragile and not suitable for off-loading. This would be certain specialized equipment.
Failing to adhere to the regulations may result in fines being issued by the authorities in Nigeria to the receivers, or refusal to accept cargo onto Nigerian soil.
In such cases, as all units are stuffed under SHIPPER’S LOAD, STOW AND COUNT, any additional charges will be for the account of the cargo, including the repatriation of cargo to origin.
