ABC of Shipping

The NIGERIAN CHAMBER OF SHIPPING (NCS) warmly welcomes you back to business operations given the official easing of the COVID-19 lock-down.

The effect of the pandemic on all sectors of the Nigerian economy, inclusive the maritime sector, has resulted in a re-strategized approach by the NCS to adopt a new focus geared towards effective delivery of our core mandate of providing local competency and bespoke capacity building programmes in line with current global trends in the international maritime value chain.

Part of this “New Normal” strategy is to offer regular and more comprehensive training curricula. As such, the Chamber has scheduled its flagship ABC of Shipping Training Program for the third quarter of the year 2020.


The multi-billion-dollar maritime industry is the backbone of modern trade, with approximately 93,000 ships trading across the world. ABC of Shipping training programme will enable participants to develop essential skills and in-depth understanding for a great career in this complex and fast-moving industry – exploring everything from maritime law to insurance, logistics, vessel chartering, ports and terminal management, environmental and economic impact assessment. It is a tested capacity building initiative, which has benefitted a wide range of industry operators, administrators, and key industry stakeholders in the public and private sector.
