Advanced Cargo Declaration (ACD) for all Nigerian import and Export shipments
We need to inform you that the Nigerian Shipper’s Council is implementing Advanced Cargo Declaration (ACD) for all Nigerian import and Export shipments. The Entry Summary Declaration (ENS) is an electronically, through web based system for shippers/forwarders in order to improve Nigeria’s ability to identify high-risk cargo shipments. This ENS will be required by all cargo types meant for all Nigeria seaports. Shipper’s/Forwarder’s are responsible to provide the ENS to the Carrier in Port of Loading before arriving the first port of Nigeria.
We will arrange this ENS for all cargo to POD Lagos as per shipment/BL date 03-12-2015, the preparation cost for this ENS number is € 15,00 per chassis/container and will be invoiced in the ocean freight. As for now it’s not sure if the ENS number must be mentioned on Bill of Lading/Carriers manifest although it is registered in the online system of the Nigerian Shipper’s Council.
