In effort to ensure distribution of cement all over Nigeria, Dangote Cement is currently seeking credible distributors form any part of Nigeria. In this regard, credible means, individuals who owns a registered company that is, whose business is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria.

To qualify to apply as Dangote distributor, you need to put the following things in place:

Register your company with Corporate Affairs Commission

Read: How to Register Your Business in Nigeria

Once you have your company registered which is very simple to do and requires just little amount of money. You will spend about N50,000 plus, that is if you are doing it by yourself.  When you have that sorted out, the next is to open a corporate account in any Nigerian bank with the company name.

Open Business Account in any of the Nigeria Banks of your choice

To open a business account in Nigeria, you would require a clearance from EFCC’s Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCUMIL) to ensure that you wouldn’t carry money go hide in oversea.

After that, you go to Federal Inland Revenue to get Tax Identification Number (TIN) which shows that you are willing to pay tax.

These are the two major requirement for opening business account in Nigeria, the bank will tell you other things you need to do. Within moments after you’ve provided all what is of you required, your account will be open. Then you get reference letter from the bank and proceed to Gangote.

Other Logistics You Need to Put in Place!

Whale House – Except you have standby customers you want to supply, you need a secure place to house your product. Get a whale house or any big shop that can accommodate minimum of 600 bags.

Some but theirs in open place and cover it with tarpaulin for safety but that depends on the quantity you are buying, if you are buying very large quantity, you’d need to get a big whale house.

Arrange for Supply Vehicle – If you can buy yours, that would be nice. In fact, it is another business on it’s own – whenever your customer buys, you’ll supply them and make extra money from the transport and load fee. You can use it as marketing tool to sell faster than others by offering free delivery to customers buying certain quantity.

If you can’t buy yours, just arrange for regular customer who would be assisting you get the cement to the final destination.

Apart from these two, there is no other much things to worry about. Get down to business and starts making money asap.

2. Retailers – A retailer don’t need to go through all these process of application. Once you have your money, you are good to go.

Go to the nearest depot and buy your cement and begin to sell. Each bag of cement you sell, you make profit of N250 – N300 which a good deal considering that you do nothing more than go carry your cement.

You need to have a shop by the roadside or near new site where building projects are ongoing in number.

Many people sell as retailers even without a shop especially those that leave near the road. All you need to do is to raise up the ground a bit with blocks and cement, plaster the ground and put some container woods.

You can build iron protector around it if the place is unsecured to avoid thieves visiting at night.

One thing very good about cement business is that a single customer could buy hundreds of bays sometimes, giving you instant profit without breaking sweat.

Note: We used Dangote as study case in this article. However, there other great cement companies out there. If you think the process of distributorship application is more simple and straight forward in your company, write detailed article about doing business to you and send to us. I’ll be glad to publish it here with a bottle of coke.

  2. Just want to compliment the goods of dangot e cementy factory cos i actually bought cement at factory price from one of their sales manger , Mr Ibrahim, and he sold dangote cement for me at 1000 naira per bag. I actually thought it was a fraud until one of their delivery trailers came to my building site and delivered 800 bags of cement , Any one that want to buy dangote cement at factory price of 1000 naira can call Mr Ibrahim on 08038837368

  3. dangote factory cement price is 100 contact distributor on 07067656701

  4. The best way to buy cement cheap is
    When you buy ATC – (Authority to collect cement
    from Dangote factory). This is the voucher that
    gives you authority to go direct to the factory to
    buy in the name of a distributor.
    You can arrange your own transport or get
    transport from us to your desired location. This
    way you get your cement at the cheapest price
    ever.
    For example:
    ATC for 300 bags of cement @ N1350 per bag =
    N450,000
    Add Transportation to any part of = N45,000
    offloading = N6,000
    Other expenses = N10,000
    Total = N511,000
    CAN YOU BEAT THIS I CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR
    YOU. THIS IS THE BEST OPTION FOR RESELLERS
    AND CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES.
    OUR MODE OF PAYMENT IS EASY AND
    CONVENIENT. YOU PAY INTO OUR ACCESS
    ACCOUNT AND COLLECT ATC SAME DAY. WE

  6. pls is it payment on delivery or will I pay before the cements are delivered?

    • If you already register with the dealers, which you have to do face-to-face, then you need not to see the dealer before you order for cement. But if the office is close or you can travel there then good also. But All am saying is that be sure to know and convinced that who so ever called him self a dealer is real

  7. buy cement direct from obanjana factroy in lokoja at 1,500 per bag

  8. What is the current price of cement from Dangote company now please. And please how is it possible for one who doesn’t have up to the amount to buy 300bags to start the distribution of Dangote cement?? Thank you so much. I anticipate your responses
