The freight forwarders have also been faced with challenges of where the haulage logistics owners, truck owners and their drivers, out of no reason just woke up one morning and then shut down operations, making it difficult for cleared goods to be exited out of the ports, which gave rise now to be increasing their haulage charges. Now within the shortest distance from inside the ports to outside, where you have unstuffing bays, you discover you are paying as much as a 100, 200, 300 thousand Naira to get containers taken out of the ports. A major issue that has been facing freight forwarders in 2018 is inconsistencies in policies; policies as, for instance, there is no harmonised duty rates or amount payable, judging from one Customs command of the port to another.
