Kaduna Dry Port Set For Domestic Export Warehouse 


The Kaduna Inland Dry Port Limited is set to commence pilot operations as Nigeria’s first Domestic Export Warehouse (DEW) service to improve the export of made-in-Nigeria goods and agricultural products.

Wakadaily gathered that the Kaduna inland Dry Port was commissioned by the Federal Government of Nigeria in 2018.

This was announced by General Manager, KIDP, Rotimi Raimi -Hassan, at a media parley recently in Lagos, also said that “support infrastructures were already in place for seamless and efficient operations.

He further complimented the Federal Government, Kaduna State Government, Chairman of the Nigeria Export Promotion Council and other government agencies for their support towards the success of the DEW project.

He noted that “about 10 trucks were ready for deployment and that KIDP had judiciously utilised the Export Expansion Facility Grant from the Federal Government under the office of the vice president to achieve hitch-free logistics.”

“I can tell you that we are ready to make DEW a success and will continue to improve in ensuring that whatever leaves our port meets international standards. We are working to bring the full port experience to Kaduna in all ramifications, except the berthing of ships. KIDP is equipped with close circuit television for enhanced security and monitoring of all activities within and around the dry port area.”

“Arrangements have also been made for exporters to have their cargoes processed for direct shipment”, he said.
