Shipping Industry In Nigeria

Nigeria, with a coastline of 852 kilometers bordering the Atlantic Ocean in the Gulf of Guinea and a maritime area of 46,000 km2, has significant and diverse marine resources.

Various national economic activities depend on or derive from ocean resources, however it has become increasingly clear that the potentials of Nigeria‘s maritime sector is far from being fully harnessed and that a coordinated policy framework is required to address this emergent reality.

About The Nigeria Shipping Industry Report 

Over 95 percent of Nigerian trade (by volume) is moved around aboard ships and handled by seaports nationwide. The blue economy (sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth) and, in particular, the ocean shipping industry is a critical component in understanding trade and development in Nigeria.
