AGS Nigeria would like to inform you that the government of Nigeria has approved a policy which requires that all containerised cargo destined for Nigeria must be palletised. Non-compliance will lead to severe cargo delays and additional costs. The Port and Customs authorities may request the non-containerised cargo to be taken back on board. This new policy is applicable to all Nigeria-bound cargo departing from various origin ports as of 01 January 2018. Any wood packaging material must be fumigated (ISPM 15), free from bark and bear the IPPC mark for the treatment.
