AFED: 3T Commenced Shipment Of Products To The UK

The Management of 3T Impex Consulting Limited will like to announce to the general public that the shipment of manufactured goods of small scale manufacturers and Agro processors in Nigeria to the United Kingdom has commenced under the African Export Development (AFED) Programme.

This shipment the exportation of 4 products to London on May 8, 2018. The products that were exported include Kulikuli, Yellow Pap, Red Pap and White Pap. The goods were shipped through the Air by the British Airways (BA074). The total weight of the shipment was about 776Kg.

Even though the initial plan of the AFED was to do a container shipment of about 20MT which will contain different products but this could not be possible because of the longer credit period requested by the Distributors in the UK. In order to avoid waiting for a longer period to conclude the negotiation, we had to change our strategy to stepwise introduction of the products into the European market through a bit by bit Air shipment. This was eventually done in the month of May 2018.  

AFED is an initiative of 3T Impex in collaboration with Signet Corporation Limited in the UK. This programme was launch in October 2017 and it is geared towards working with Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) to facilitate the exportation of their various products in the UK and EU markets. It is a programme that has five stages which include Stakeholders, Sample, Selection, Signing and Shipment. 

Some of the features and benefits of this initiative include aggregated export service, shared cost of shipment, export market development for SME’s, and low risk entry into export market. Other benefits include ready buyers in the UK and EU market, free product packaging advisory service, short export business cycle 90 days form shipment date) to mention but few.
