NSC invites interested firms and/or consortium of firms to participate in the qualification process for the selection of a Private Partner through a Competitive Bidding (CB) process for the development of the Ibadan Inland Dry Port (IIDP). The selected Private Partner shall undertake the Design, Finance, Build, Operate, Maintain and Transfer (DFBOMT) based on Terms and Conditions to be set out in the Concession Agreement. The overall objective of the selection process will be the successful procurement of a concessionaire with technical and financial capability for the optimal benefit of the country.
- PROJECT OBJECTIVE
A major policy goal IDP development is the control and reduction of the high cost of maritime freight to Nigerian hinterlands and by extension landly (landlocked) countries. In keeping with this policy goal, the development of IDPs will help simplifying tariffs and processes at the ports and enhance operational efficiency of cargo shipment to and from Nigeria.
The proposed IDP will have a modular design with capacity to handle 40,000 TEUS per annum with potential for future expansion. A land area measuring 40 Hectares has been earmarked for the dry port at Olorisaoko on the Iseyin-Ibadan road axis on the northern outskirts of Ibadan. The nearly 875km Lagos-to-Kano standard-gauge railway line currently under construction is in its planned alignment intended to go past the site location which is also to serve as a passenger terminal.
The IIDP shall provide a full complement of cargo handling and storage facilities to guarantee its economic viability. The proposed facility shall consist of a container stacking area, an office complex for IDP administration and Customs and other regulatory agencies, a container freight station with an adjacent stuffing and stripping area that will also serve as customs inspection zone, a loading/unloading area of trucks carrying LCL-Cargo, an equipment parking area dedicated also to maintenance and repair activities, and finally a container interchange including a truck parking area outside of the IDP boundary.
