    Shipping Methods

    Both air and sea freight shipping are safe for the transportation of equipment to Nigeria depending on the size of the shipment and time convenience.

    For Sea Shipping - Roro shipping (roll on roll off) is the best and most affordable shipping method that guarantees safety for any material or equipment with wheels. Non containerized is the second shipping method for heavy duty equipment and materials. It is ideally designed for oversized cargo and highly effective for materials that do not run on wheels; that is materials that require lift on and lift off (Lolo).
