NPA, Customs move to streamline export process


NPA, Customs move to streamline export process

To concretise efforts geared towards facilitating increased export by the Federal Government, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) have commenced moves to streamline export process at the nation’s seaports.

Towards this end, the Managing Director of NPA, Mohammed Bello-Koko, met with the Comptroller General of Customs, Bashir Adewale Adeniyi at the Customs Area Command, Apapa, Lagos to chart course for a seamless export process.

The meeting focused on infusing greater efficiency in port operations, especially around the export value chain.

Specifically, the deliberations focused on the elimination of duplication of Custom export desks undertaking multiple cargo checks from the NPA-licensed Export Processing Terminals (EPT) to the port gate and within the port.

Both agencies also agreed to put in place inter-agency modalities to ensure that 24-hour port operations, which is a necessary precondition for port competitiveness become a reality
