NSC Holds Sensitization Seminar on Take-off of Kaduna Dry Port


 The Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) will on Friday hold a one-day sensitization seminar on the take-off of Inland Dry Port in Kaduna State.

The seminar which will be under the auspices of the Ministry of Transport and in collaboration with the Inland Container Nigeria will come under the theme ‘’ The Emergence of Inland Dry Port in Promoting International Trade and Enhancement of Hinterland Shipping.’’
The seminar is expected to prepare stakeholders towards the successful take-off of the Inland Dry Port in Kaduna.
The Minister of Transportation, Mr  Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi will be the Chief Host at the occasion while the Executive Governor of Kaduna State is the Special Guest of Honour.
The event will among other things sensitize stakeholders on the benefits of the Dry Port in the state and its environs and widen the shippers’ horizon on effective utilization of the dry port facility for import and export business.
It would be recalled that the Federal Executive Council in 2016 granted approval for the establishment of six (6) ICDs/CFSs across the country in the following locations, Isiala-Ngwa (Aba), Erunmu (Ibadan), Zawachiki (Kano), Heipang (Jos) and CFS in Funtua (Katsina and Jauri Maiduguri).

Operating as the Ports Economic Regulator has given the Council further impetus to ensure the realization of the projects to boost operations in the industry.
