MSC to offer services to/from port Harcourt, Nigeria

We are pleased to announce effective 1st March, Port Harcourt will be added to our Lomé feeder service and will be served using 1,800 TEU self-sustained containerships. 

As an important industrial centre and home to many multinational firms as well as businesses related to the oil industry, Port Harcourt offers importers significant advantages regarding its convenient geographical location and accessibility to road networks.   Port Harcourt is the second largest port in Nigeria; it is well situated to serve customers in urban centres of Aba and Onitsha, as well as offering a gateway to Abuja, Kano and the north of Nigeria.  Many importers may have a preference for taking delivery at Port Harcourt over Lagos depending on their logistics requirements.

Thanks to MSC’s dedicated new service to Port Harcourt, importers will be able to collect cargo direct in the city centre, saving time as well as cost of onward transport and distribution.  MSC will be the only major shipping line to offer a service to Port Harcourt and, together with the “PTOL” terminal, will be able to offer optimum facilities and competitive conditions to all importers.
