Shippers’ council seals APMDC over arbitrary charges

The Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC), the port economic regulator, has shut down the operations of the Associated Port & Marine Development Company (APMDC) Ltd., a shipping company in Lagos.
The Deputy Director, Monitoring and Enforcement Division, Mrs Celine Ifeora, disclosed this in a statement in Lagos.
The statement was signed by Mrs Rakiya Zubairu, Head, Public Relations, NSC.
According to Ifeora, the cargo-consolidator was issued several notices to address infractions ranging from charges in forex to non-compliance with approved nomenclature of charges.
“Such nomenclature of charges are Transport Adjustment charges, non-vessel operating carriers, outright disregard of terms of mediation reached at NSC and unresolved complaints of over one and half years, among others,” she said.
Speaking shortly after the enforcement exercise, Ifeora, said NSC sealed APMDC’s premises following its non-compliance with Council’s directive as Port Economic Regulator.
