The Nigerian Government is considering regulations which would punish foreign shipping firms that leave empty containers in Nigerian ports to eliminate port congestion, it has been revealed

The fine will be payable in the form of demurrage or a levy.

The prospective laws are designed to help reduce frequent overcrowding at the Port of Lagos caused by empty containers at the quayside, according to the government.

The regulation is part of a report to be sent for final authorisation by Nigeria’s National Assembly.
