  • As of March 2023, the Nigerian government is enhancing the country's air cargo competitiveness by establishing specialized committees comprising representatives from both public and private sectors. These committees are tasked with the construction and operation of airports equipped with modern cargo infrastructure. Overall, the various shortcomings in Nigeria's air cargo value chain could potentially disadvantage the country in the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), an emerging free trade market in Africa. Overall, NGN 1.5 trillion (USD 5 billion) is required to fix the country's air infrastructure.
  • The freight and logistics market has been developing rapidly from 2017 to 2021, and it is led by the volume of the courier, express, and parcel market. As of 2022, as a comparison among logistics startups in Nigeria, Kobo360, a logistics company in Nigeria (Lagos) launched in 2016, had the highest number of employees compared to other logistics companies in the country. The business counted over 260 workers, followed by Eden Life and Sendbox, with 86 and 68 employees, respectively.
  • Nigeria has the largest road network in West Africa and the second largest south of the Sahara, totaling about 194,200 km. Federal roads make up 17.6%, state roads 15.7%, and local and rural roads 66.7% of this network.
