Due to the ongoing yard consolidations in all ports of load that are needed to address space concerns and improve efficiency it has become necessary to suspend receipt of Non-Running units to Lagos at all US terminals. Non-runners to Lagos will not be accepted for a period of 2 weeks beginning Monday
April 5 through Friday April 16. This will allow terminals to operate more efficiently and evacuate cargo quickly.
Please be advised that due to space constrains and the fact that all POL’s are at capacity with respect to Non-Running and Forklift cargo, effective Monday March 29th all Terminals will STOP accepting Lagos Non-Running and Forklift deliveries until further notice.
All Terminals will ONLY accept Non-Running and Forklift deliveries for Cotonou, Lomé and Tema bookings. We will continue to monitor the on-ground situation at each Terminals and advise when Lagos Non-Running and Forklift cargo can resume.
