What is the container groupage and cost to Nigeria?

Container groupage is the act of purchasing a shipping space in a 20ft or 40ft container ranging from 1 CBM, 5 feet, 10 feet , 15 feet and up to 20 feet space . Cost  will usually start at £300/CBM, this will include customs clearance and all documentations for the shipment taken care of by the freight forwarder.  

Commercial freight to Nigeria and other West African countries from the UK and EU is where we are specialised and can help any type of business. Here we have offered very affordable stress free and cheap cargo groupage options. Groupage is the method of buying a cargo space with other companies or individuals and transporting the goods together to a port or destination. As a small or medium size business owner, freight charge takes up a large chunk of your business cost which will normally cut into your profit, cashflow and present you with serious challenges in trying to compete with your competitors. Using groupage for your import and export is cheaper and allows you to hands off the headache that comes with import and export knowing fully well that your freight forwarder is in control and will deliver to you promptly. Be sure that your proof of export for your VAT refund from your supplier will be taken care of by us if any is required.

Here you can enquire or book container spaces ranging from 5ft space to 20ft  space from our groupage options, once you are sure that your goods will fit any of the groupage spaces offered below, please use the Book Now button below to book your freight . We will contact you back within 24hrs.
