In an interview, the Director of Operations at Ghana Link Network Services Ltd, Raymond Amaglo, expressed gratitude to the stakeholders across the supply chain for their collaboration and efforts towards the successes achieved in the clearance chain.

“They have helped us to identify areas in which to make improvements to, and they have brought suggestions on how we should streamline the processes.

“Because of that collaboration, it helped for us to overcome all the challenges that have come across the period that we have implemented our solutions,” he said.

He added that Ghana Link would continuously improve its processes to achieve the desired results.

“Our goal is to ensure that on a very constant basis, we are improving our processes at the ports just to ensure that when it comes to trade facilitation in the sub-region there is no country comparable to us.”

He said the operators of the ICUMS, Ghana Link would continue to ensure that its processes were efficient to bring about a reduction in cost at the various ports of entry and also see to it that there is a reduction in time of doing business. 

The awards programme which is in its 5th year running is to reward those who have played defining roles in moving the shipping industry in Ghana forward and have demonstrated achievement across a wide variety of domains including sustainability, operational excellence and innovation.

The CEO of the Ghana Shippers Authority, Benonita Bismarck, said her outfit would continue to promote and protect the interest of shippers.

Speaking on behalf of the Minister of Transport, the Deputy Minister of Transport, Frederick ObengAdom, revealed that the government had taken action to find lasting solutions to shipper complaints including arbitrary charges and exchange rates used by some service providers.
