Saima Nigeria Limited. Think global, act local.

History

Saima Nigeria Limited was founded in 1980 jointly with Nigerian entrepreneurs as an international freight-forwarding, ship-owning company, shipping agent, and benefited from the experience and the international reputation built up by Saima Avandero in over two and a half centuries in the world of shipping.

Saima Nigeria was established in conjunction with the activities developed in the country by the Saima Avandero’s Projects Division, starting in 1961.
By way of references we should mention the shipments managed by Saima early in 1961 for account of Impregilo of Milan (in connection with construction of the Kainji Dam) and of Cogefar of Milan (Apapa Second Wharf Extension Project).

Projects have been the core business of Saima Nigeria over the years. The utmost attention and commitment have been devoted to strategic projects for development of the country such as the hydroelectric and agricultural projects, water distribution, road-building, civil engineering works and oil and gas projects.
Over the last decade Saima Nigeria has embarked on a huge investment plan, upgrading the equipment and infrastructures supporting the Company’s activities, specifically inland transport, handling equipment, cargo storage and warehousing facilities, in addition to modern workshops for maintenance of the equipment.
