Bonded Terminal in Lagos: Apapa and Tin Can Ports

Nigeria’s bustling commercial city, Lagos, is home to the Apapa and Tin Can Island ports, two of the largest and most significant ports in the country. These ports serve as crucial hubs for import and export activities, facilitating the movement of goods and services.

Wigmore Trading’s Strategic Partnership

Wigmore Trading has established a strategic partnership with one of the largest private container terminals in Lagos, offering extensive capacity and advanced cargo handling equipment. This partnership enhances the efficiency and reliability of cargo handling and storage at these key ports.

Key Features of the Bonded Terminal

  1. Capacity
    • 7,000 TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units): The terminal has a significant capacity to handle a large volume of containers, ensuring ample space for storage and efficient management of cargo.
  2. Operational Efficiency
    • The terminal is fully operational, providing seamless services to facilitate quick turnaround times for cargo handling and delivery.
  3. Advanced Cargo Handling Equipment
    • The terminal is equipped with cargo handling equipment of various capacities and functions. This includes cranes, forklifts, and other specialized machinery designed to handle different types of cargo efficiently and safely.

Benefits of Using a Bonded Terminal

  1. Customs Clearance Efficiency
    • Bonded terminals simplify customs clearance processes, allowing importers to store their goods in a duty-free zone until they are ready for distribution or further processing.
  2. Cost Savings
    • By using bonded terminals, businesses can defer the payment of duties and taxes until the goods are released from the terminal, improving cash flow management.
  3. Security and Safety
    • Bonded terminals provide a secure environment for storing goods, reducing the risk of theft or damage.
  4. Flexibility
    • Businesses can manage their inventory more effectively, as bonded terminals allow for partial clearance and release of goods as needed.

Importance of Apapa and Tin Can Ports

  • Apapa Port: As Nigeria’s premier port, Apapa handles a significant portion of the country’s maritime traffic, including bulk cargo, containerized goods, and general cargo.
  • Tin Can Island Port: Complementing Apapa, Tin Can Island Port specializes in RoRo (Roll-on/Roll-off) operations, handling vehicles and other wheeled cargo, as well as containerized goods.


Leveraging the capabilities of bonded terminals at Apapa and Tin Can ports through Wigmore Trading’s strategic partnership offers businesses a robust solution for efficient cargo handling and storage. The advanced facilities and significant capacity ensure that goods are managed effectively, contributing to smoother logistics operations and enhanced trade activities.
