How Much Do You Currently Pay Per Unit For Shipping Of Goods To Nigeria? by Kobojunkie: 7:15pm On Jul 09, 2010
Shipping goods to Nigeria. I know there are some Nigerians out there who currently have to deal with shipping goods down to Nigeria on a regular basis. I am here seeking advice from such Nigerians on how to go about solving my own problem here. I need to ship an average of 250kg in goods to each customer and would like some information on how to best save on cost. I know I can pass the cost down to customers, which is what I am currently doing but that even with that, I believe it is in my best interest to find cheaper ways of shipping so my service becomes even more affordable to more people out there.

Using aircargo shippings costs about $4.75 per kg from the US. Shipping by sea is cheaper but still would love to know what people currently pay out there. How much do you currently pay per unit for shipping of goods to Nigeria from whatever location you do? What services do you use and how can one contact them?

Please do not bother trying to use this to make quick some quick bucks for yourself and don't bother posting your phone number or email if the information is secret.

I use two agents in the UK. One charges £3.50 per kilo to Lagos and they have shipments going almost every weekday. The other charges £3.00 per kilo, and they have shipments going only on Fridays, so it depends on how urgently I need to send goods across.

@poster, cost of shipping by sea depends on the item and the quantity of the item you are shipping.
If your shipment does not exceed 1000kg i will advise you stick to air freight.

When you are shipping by sea, you are expected to use a container or you share the container with some other people.
Depending on the item, you will also pay the following charges;

CUSTOM DUTY,
SHIPPING COMPANY CHARGES,
TERMINAL HANDLING CHARGES,
as well as AGENCY CHARGES.

All these excludes shipping charges.

If your product or item is regulated by any agency like NAFDAC,SON, PLANT QUARANTINE etc, you will be expected to pay their charges too.
