APM Terminals Apapa is the only container terminal in Nigeria with a rail link to other parts of the nation. Using our rail service, congestion can be avoided leading to faster turnaround time for cargo. Our rail facilities mean that cargo can be loaded directly onto a train at our terminal to the hinterland.
Rail transport is quick and reliable – free of traffic jams - and is extremely suitable for heavy loads and dangerous transport. One train takes an average of 20 lorries off the road. By using rail transportation from the port, we shall all make freight transport more cost-efficient and also significantly reduce traffic congestion and the negative impact on the environment.
