Coronavirus: NPA Suspends Demurrage
- The Nigerian Ports Authority has directed all Terminal operators to suspend all applicable terminal storage fees on consignments (demurrage) for an initial period of twenty-one days effective March 23, 2020.
- This gesture is in recognition of the pressure that the COVID-19 pandemic imposes on businesses, the responsibility imposed on the Authority to relief this burden on its customers as well as attaining the objective of the Federal Governmentâ€™s Ease of Doing Business Policy at this trying period.
- The Authority recognises the financial implications of these policies on the terminal operators and will consider a shift in our operational charges to ameliorate the situation of stakeholders.
- The NPA thanks all stakeholders for their cooperation.
