Lagos port congestion is affecting port operations and creating a severe backlog at ports, causing carriers’ containers to be held in port for extra days, as well as creating several miles of truck traffic at roads that links to port gates.

Six ships carrying petrol and other products are at Apapa and Tin-Can Island ports waiting to berth, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has said in its daily publication on Thursday.

It said three of the vessels contained petrol, while the remaining three ships would berth with containers of various goods and frozen fish.

The NPA also stated that 29 ships carrying containers, bulk malt, general cargo, buckwheat, butane and frozen fish were expected at the ports between May 2 and May 17.
