The Nigerian Shippers Council has concluded plans to synergise with airfreight stakeholders to promote seamless trade and create an enabling environment for businesses.

This was contained in a statement by the Head, Public Relations, NSC, Rakiya Dhikru-Yagboyaju recently.

According to the statement, the Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer, NSC, Emmanuel Jime, made the call on Wednesday when the President Airfreight Stakeholders’ Forum, Mr. Toyin Onifade, led his members on a courtesy visit to the NSC’s headquarters in Lagos.

Jime said that NSC was statutorily established to protect the interest of shippers.

He added that the  Airfreight Stakeholders’ Forum was essential to this fundamental responsibility.

“I have had a thorough briefing about the activities of the Airfreight Stakeholders’ Forum. I understand that the Forum has, expectedly, played a key role in airfreight matters. As Port Economic Regulator, NSC wants business to be done seamlessly in both the seaports and airports in the country,” he further said.

Jime also emphasised the need to ensure proper packaging of exports for various international markets while assuring the  team of NSC’s support for their operations.

Earlier, Onifade, who appreciated the Council for receiving his team, had unveiled plans to launch a manual which would provide guidelines for stakeholders in airfreight businesses in the country.

He maintained that the maritime sector could generate several employment opportunities.

Onifade drew the attention to the fact that airfreight was cheaper than conveyance of goods by roads.
