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.
