Kaduna Inland Dry Port was gazetted on May 25, 2015 as port of origin for export forwarding and a port of destination for import consignments, and inaugurated by President Buhari.

PROJECTED IMPACT: The commencement of operations at the port facility will decongest Lagos’ seaports and bring shipping to the doorsteps of hinterland shippers, transact business and use the dry port platform to either clear their import or forward export without interface with Onne/Lagos seaports, eliminating the hindrances faced in export logistics.
