Shipment to Tincan Port, Lagos from Japan

There are some routings in international trade which, due to various circumstances, can result in delayed shipments.  Please note, however, that all of these shipping routes are subject to change.

If you possibly can, try and avoid shipping from a Japanese Port to Tincan Port in Lagos. The connections are a bit complicated according to the Japanese supplier. They were right. A container shipped from Yokohama on 26th May 2007 was transshipped via Shanghai, Hong Kong and Port Kelang before leaving the Far East for Tincan Port. It is now due to arrive on 18th August 2007 at Tincan. Shipments to Apapa Port, Lagos are much faster to arrange since there are easier routings and connections.
