Lagos To Get New Cargo Shed
The Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (Nahcoaviance) plans to build a new cargo shed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, Nigeria, to replace the existing one. The N1.19bn ($7.9m) project will enhance cargo facilitation and sustain the profitability of the cargo handling business. It will involve semi-automation with enhanced storage capacities and operational efficiencies to increase the annual cargo throughput to 200,000t and 60,000t of imports and exports respectively. Lagos-based Messrs Interaf Construction Limited and German company ALS Logistic Solutions have been appointed as contractors for the project, which will be complete within seven months.
