CMA Terminals, 100% subsidiary of the CMA CGM Group, and ICTSI announced their future cooperation in Nigeria by signing a deal for ICTSI to sell 25% of the container terminal in Nigeria, Lekki International Container Terminal Services LFTZ Enterprise (LICTSLE) to CMA Terminals.

This capacity will serve the Nigerian market in the long run and will ease capacity pressure. The terminal is designed to allow for further capacity growth exceeding the initial 2.5 million TEU.

The location, 60 km east of metropolitan Lagos, will be combined with a state-of-the-art facilities including 14 Post - Panamax cranes.
