Are you looking to clear a container in Nigeria?
The cost of clearing a container will depend on the cargo and size of your container. The most important costs to consider are:
1) Container Size - Larger containers will have higher clearance fees because they take up more space at the port. For example 20ft containers can hold up to 2 TEUs worth of goods while 40ft containers can hold up to 4 TEUs worth of goods.
2) Cargo Type - Containers with dangerous or hazardous materials, such as chemicals, can incur additional charges for safety precautions.
3) Port Location - Ports in developing countries typically charge less than ports in developed countries because labour is cheaper there. However, this means that it may be necessary to wait longer for customs inspections and other processes before being able to collect your goods from the terminal.
4) Customs Clearance Time - It's possible that you'll need more time when shipping through certain ports because they're not equipped with advanced technology like scanners and x-ray machines which speed up customs clearance times elsewhere around the world. This can lead to delays and increased costs if you're waiting for someone else (such as a freight forwarder or logistics company) to handle these aspects of your shipment process for you; however, this also means that it might be easier to find an agent who speaks English at some ports where English speakers are rarer than others. In addition, some ports require agents who work on behalf of importers/exporters pay duty.
5) Duty - which is dependent on the value of your shipment and the category of products contained. This typically the largest cost.
6) Other notable costs include PAAR reduction, Shipping and Terminal Costs. NAFDAC and Customs charges may apply depending on goods being shipped.
7) Demurrage and other terminal charges - may be applied if containers are stored at the terminals for longer than agreed with the shipping lines.
8) Fees to the clearing agent for use of their License.
9) Trucking and Logistics costs to and from the warehouse in Nigeria.
