The Nigerian Shippers’ Council said it has issued the certificate to operate as a regulated service provider to the APM Terminals, operators’ of the Apapa Container Terminal.

The certificate was given to the APM Terminals when a 4-man delegation led by Martijn Van Dongen, it’s vice president, paid a courtesy visit to the Nigerian Shippers’ Council at its headquarters in Lagos.

Dongen said the essence of the visit was to strengthen collaboration with the Nigerian Shippers’ Council as the port’s economic regulator.

Chinenye Deinde, the Legal Adviser and Head of Corporate Affairs of APMT, also called on NSC to pursue the National Transport Commission (NTC) Bill, adding that it has the potential to sanitise the maritime sector.

In his response, Emmanuel Jime, executive secretary/CEO of NSC, said that the Shippers’ Council is working on the review of its enabling Act which he believes will strengthen the agency in its role as port economic regulator.

According to him, the Federal Government is committed to making Nigeria an investment haven for foreign investors while encouraging local entrepreneurs to be creative in growing the economy.

“The strategic location of this country on the African continent makes it a trigger for investments,” the ES said.

Dongen was accompanied on the visit by Klaus Holm Laursen, head of Joint Ventures, Africa and Europe; Chinenye Deinde, Legal Adviser & head of Corporate Affairs, APM Terminals and Frederick Klinke, managing director of APM Terminals Nigeria.
