UAL introduces Warri service 

Universal Africa Lines (UAL) has partnered with multipurpose terminal operator Julius Berger Services Nigeria (JBSN) to launch a direct liner service to Warri, Nigeria. 

The monthly service will depart from Europe and call at Warri port’s Terminal C, where JBSN provides stevedoring, storage and Customs clearance services. 

UAL said that the service will offer a transit time of 30 days, without transhipment stops, and will cater for breakbulk, project cargo and container shipments. 

“The port of Warri is centrally positioned in Nigeria. Today, traffic in Lagos is completely blocked, and it takes many extra days to get cargoes out to their final destinations in the rest of Nigeria and even beyond,” said Harald Maas, director of UAL Netherlands. 

“The port of Warri offers excellent shorter inland connections and does not have any of the logistical challenges which Lagos currently experiences. This, together with a highly efficient Custom clearing process, offers a very good opportunity for improved transit times for delivery to the final destinations within Nigeria.”
