At the moment, these set of persons and other unemployed citizenry are seeking for alternate source of income. Paid employments are hard to come by and thus, the best option is for them to become self-employed.

With evolutions in the cyberspace, Nigerians are already porting to the profitable business of importation. The importation business no doubt, had made many millionaires and other members of the Nigerian society involved in the business are literally “living large”.

It’s no longer news that you can import “from the comfort of your room” but where the problem lies is: How do I get my imported products?

In the importation business, you need freight or clearing agents whose responsibility is to receive and dispatch your imported goods.

In Nigeria today, there are many clearing and forwarding agents in virtually every town in each state of the Nigerian federation.

While clearing agents are responsible for the receipt and delivery of imported products in the country, the forwarding agent is responsible for dispatching products out of the country. For your importation (or exportation) business to succeed, you need clearing and forwarding agents.

If on the other hand, you choose to be a clearing and forwarding agent, there are certain steps you must take to legalize this.

What is traditionally obtainable is the use of “apprentices” for clearing and forwarding. These apprentices attach themselves to clearing and forwarding agents with the aim of learning about the business directly from them.

Though this action seems viable, it is not legalized. In an interview granted to the press in June 2014, the Association of Nigeria Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) frowned at the continual use of apprentices in the business. According to the briefing, the apprenticeship practice is “archaic” and should be abolished.

This shows that the use of apprenticeship method in the clearing and forwarding business is no longer accepted in the business.

Currently, there have been positive developments in the clearing and forwarding industry as trainings are now available for intending clearing and forwarding agents.

These trainings can be obtained through online portals or by registering with accredited clearing and forwarding centers and companies.

The latter is the most viable and you should patronize such. You’re now presented with the list of top 10 clearing and forwarding training centers in Nigeria:
