Cargo Handling

With warehouses in Abuja, Kano, Portharcourt and Enugu, our cargo services include:

  • Warehousing.

NAHCO places a high premium on safety and security in line with international conventions and standards.

Right from the aircraft through the bulk breaking to warehousing, cargo is maximally secured. NAHCO  security operatives work 24/7 in concert with other security agencies at the airports to secure clients’ shipment and ensure hitch-free operations.

Our warehouses in Lagos have acres of spaces and able to accommodate all sizes of cargo. Information on stacked cargo or any cargo entering the warehouse is controlled by our Galaxy system for easy tracing. We have special storage facilities to take care of perishables, dangerous goods or radio-active cargo and valuables.

To ensure seamless movement of cargo in and out of the warehouses, we have new functional tractors and forklifts of different tonnages. Once the process of documentation is completed, cargo is delivered to customers without delay.

Our MMIA, Lagos warehouse has the capacity to handle 230,000 and 60,000 tonnes of import and export cargo respectively per annual.

The semi-automated warehouse incorporates mechanical conveying system and frictionless raised platform (castor mat area) in addition to the reconstruction of the access road and working floor areas which enhances the speed and efficiency of the cargo handling processes.
