The Lagos Port is located in Apapa, the main commercial district of Lagos State, which is close to the Bight of Benin. It is also known as the Premiere port or Apapa port, and it is the largest and oldest port in the nation in terms of both the amount of goods handled and the amount of territory it covers. The Apapa Quays serve as a transhipment hub for inland nations like Chad and Niger and are where more than half of all marine trade between Nigeria and the rest of the world takes place. The port is linked to other regions of Nigeria and its close neighbors through highways, inland waterways, and railways.
The Tin Can Island port is situated west of Apapa near the Lagos Port Complex. It was built in 1975, when economic activity, notably foreign trade, rose significantly as a result of Nigeria’s oil boom following the end of the civil war and the start of rehabilitation. It is now the second busiest port in Nigeria. The Lagos port became congested as a result of increasing import and export activity, therefore another facility was built on Tin Can Island to divert extra freight.
The new Calabar port, located 45 nautical miles upstream of the Fairway buoy, opened for business in 1979. The Nigeria Ports Authority oversees the operation of this multipurpose port, which has three terminals run by ECM Terminal Ltd, INTELS Nigeria Ltd, and Shoreline Logistics Nigeria Limited. Since colonial times, Calabar port has handled containers, general cargo, bagged cement, grains, and seafood for the Northern states of Nigeria.
