Lekki Deep Seaport Marks One Year of Operations

One year after the commencement of commercial operations at Lekki Port, Nigeria’s premier deep seaport, the management announced that the port has received 75 vessels and managed over 100,000 containers.

The port, which officially started commercial operations on April 1, 2024, has also facilitated more than 25,000 transshipments of cargo destined for neighboring West African nations.

In a statement shared on its official X handle @LekkiPort, the past year has been a notable journey for Lekki Deep Sea Port since the berthing of GSL Alice on April 6, 2023.

“We have welcomed 75 vessels including the first LNG-powered vessel and the largest ship of 366 length overall (LOA) to enter Nigerian waters. We also embarked on transshipment in June 2023 with the arrival of the first transshipment vessel, the CMA CGM RIMBAUD. Since then, we have facilitated over 25,000 transshipments and counting.

“As the only deep seaport in Nigeria with the ability to handle 14,000 Twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) container vessels, we put our facilities to good use and have handled over 100,000 containers in the past one year, showcasing our capability to support global trade,” the management said.
