Air Lagos Tutorial - Calculating Transportation Costs
Airport to Airport (ATA) or Terminal to Terminal (T2T) costs: This cost is the rate for transporting cargo from an Airport in the USA to Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, Nigeria. Air Lagos Consolidation Service is T2T in that our rate includes transport from our terminal/warehouse in Romulus, Michigan to our terminal/warehouse in Lagos. Most international air service from the USA to Nigeria is based on a 220 lb or 100 kg minimum shipment. Air Lagos offers rates starting at $3.00 for a 1 lb shipment and as little as $2.25 per lb for 1000 lbs.
