DHL, one of our suppliers, for example, has twelve main service points spread across Nigeria including in Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan and Port Harcourt. When shipping with carriers such as DHL, or indeed UPS or TNT, you can rest assured that they are experienced in shipping to Nigeria, with both the delivery of your parcels and ensuring a swift customs clearance - both important factors when shipping internationally.

Exporting to Nigeria
As the second largest sub-Saharan African economy, second only to South Africa, Nigeria is a promising business prospect for UK SMEs. The Nigerian economy is growing at a fast rate (7% in 2011) and the UK already has £1billion investment in the country. In fact, both UK exports and imports to and from Nigeria have been growing since 2010.
If you are thinking of expanding into the African market, Nigeria could be a good place to start. Language barriers would not be a problem as English is the accepted language of business and Nigeria’s timezone is GMT+1, meaning that timing issues that could arise from doing business in other parts of the world would not be an issue in Nigeria. With Transglobal Express, you could also save up to 70% on your shipping costs, leaving you more resources to invest elsewhere in your business.
Importing from Nigeria
In addition to our range of export services, we also offer UK import services from Nigeria. Our import services are excellent value and our customer services team are here to help you every step of the way. Place an import order through us and we will create your documentation, forward this to your collection point in Nigeria, and, as soon as your goods have been collected, we’ll provide you with a tracking number to follow your parcel all the way to its UK destination. Please contact us for more information or enter the details of the parcels you’d like to import by filling in the quote form above. You’ll be prompted to indicate that it’s an import service that you require, rather than export, on the next page.
Transit Times to Nigeria
Transit times to Nigeria vary depending on the service you choose and the address to which you're shipping. With our range of parcel delivery services, we are able to offer couriers to every address in Nigeria (though some carriers are unable to deliver to P.O. boxes) and just how long your delivery will take will depend on your collection and delivery address. You will see an estimate of your transit time on our quote screen, but you can also calculate a more accurate estimate by entering the appropriate address details into our Transit Times Calculator Tool on our Transit Times Page.
Customs Information for Nigeria
With the exception of documents, all shipments to Nigeria from the UK are subject to customs clearance and therefore must be accompanied by four copies of a customs invoice listing the contents of your parcel and their respective value. It’s advisable to make this information as comprehensive and detailed as you can to help ensure that clearance is as swift as possible. When booking your parcel delivery to Nigeria through Transglobal Express, you’ll be invited to enter all of the relevant information during our booking process and then all of the documentation you’ll need will be emailed to you directly and also available in your My Account area for ease of reference
In addition to our prohibited and restricted items list, Nigeria prohibits the import of many other items into the country. Some of the more surprising ones include: ball point pens, spaghetti and noodles, rugs and carpets and soap in retail packs. For the most up-to-date information and to avoid any problems post-shipping, we’d strongly recommend that you check the latest list of prohibited items published by the Nigeria Customs Service.
