Incorporated in 1979, the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company PLC (nahcoaviance) provides ground handling services at all the major international airports in Nigeria. Cargo handling and facilitation represent a major part of the company’s service offering, accounting for over 40% of income.

Cargo facilitation is carried out at Customs bonded warehouses in Lagos, Abuja, Kano and Port Harcourt.

Cargo operations have been automated with the installation of the Hermes Computerisation System at a cost of over $US1m. This has led to accurate cargo documentation and speedy facilitation. It has reduced human intervention on cargo facilitation and enhanced revenue.

Safety and service excellence are some of nahcoaviance’s core values. The warehouses are secured by well trained guards, while CCTV surveillance is on for 24 hours. Also, screening machines are available to guide against the importation or exportation of dangerous or prohibited goods.
