FAAN partners Customs to expedite airport cargo clearance
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said it is working with the Nigeria Customs Service and clearing agents to expedite the clearing process of cargo at the airport.
The Managing Director of FAAN, Engr. Saleh Dunoma stated this in Lagos during an inspection tour of on-going projects at the airports. Engr. Dunoma, in pursuit of diversification of sources of revenue from aeronautical sources to others, said cargo operations would soon become a mainstay of the Authority’s operations.
According to him, the limitations are due to the laid-down procedures and processes that must be followed which is statutory.
He added that cargo terminals are built all over the country to take advantage of the agricultural potential of the country and eliminate wastage.
He assured the general public that efforts are being made to fasttrack the cargo system.
