  1. Gd day sir,
    Would like to confirm if the profitability table of cashew as shown is as current as now, and also how long exactly is the period starting from February can one export cashew.

  2. Good day Dele,
    thank you for all the information provided herein, it has really been useful.
    Please, i would like to know how much it would cost to engage a freight forwarder, and inspectors. Are their fees charged based on the no of containers exported or are they based on the value of goods exported? looking through your profitability analysis for different products, it was observed that these cost varied. can u please give more insight on this variations? Also, is the cost of getting an NXP form a one-off cost or is it usually incurred anytime we want to export goods? Thanks.

  3. Freight Forwarding on the chart include shipping line fee= 35000, and Freight forwarder fee=25000 and this fees are charged per container

    Inspection fee varies from 40000-50000.

    NXP fee is paid per NXP form that is submitted to the Bank.

  4. Thanks a lot for the prompt response. but is the NXP form collected everytime you want to export? secondly, the freight forwarder (FF) fee varies per product. The FF fee for Lead is different from Dried Split Ginger and so on...Please throw more light on these.
