Safebond Redefines Port Operations

savebondSafebond, a shore handling operator at the ports of Tema and Takoradi, says it is poised to help the ports achieve their vision of becoming a leading trade and logistics hub in the West Africa Sub-Region.

The company said its modern and efficient processes had helped to reduce clearing time significantly at the ports and speed up the turnaround time of vessels.

Mr. Isaac Kodom, Group Deputy Managing Director, said since the company took charge of non-containerised car terminal operations at the port, it had brought in the best human resource, technology and customer/employee-oriented management to improve maritime operations.

He said the company had ensured maximum terminal security with the deployment of a good mix of physical and electronic security measures and a unique automated system of cargo clearance and management.

“This has ensured maximum productivity, safety and security of cargo at the terminal as well as satisfaction of customers,” he said.
Mr. Kodom added that the company’s goal was to become a major economic and social development partner by leveraging on its experiences to launch into related and unrelated business areas to achieve its Pan-African agenda.

Meanwhile, the company has donated a double incubator valued at US$18400 to the Tema General Hospital Children’s Ward as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Mr. Isaac Kodom making the presentation stated that over the years the company had embarked on a number of CSR programmes as a way of giving back to society. Areas of concentration include education and health, among others.

Dr. Kwabena Onwona Agyeman, receiving the incubator on behalf of the hospital was grateful to the company for the kind gesture.
He called on corporate Ghana to emulate the gesture of the company since government alone could not bear the expenses.

Among institutions that have benefitted from its CSR activities are the Children’s Heart Foundation, Tema General Hospital, Tema Municipal Assembly, University of Ghana Medical School, Orthopedic Centre, Chemu Secondary School, CNN African Journalist of the Year Awards and Corpus Christi School.
The company operates as part of a network of strategic business units including Safebond Car Terminal, and Selig Services. The company is a one-stop logistics company providing top-notch value added services to its clients, which include government and the private sector.
