The Governing Council of CILT Ghana Calls on the Chief Executive of the Ghana Shippers Authority

A delegation of the Governing Council of The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Ghana led by its President, Mr. Ebo Hammond on Thursday the 7th of September, 2017 paid a courtesy call on the newly appointed Chief Executive of the Ghana Shippers Authority (GSA), Ms. Benonita Bismarck, to formally welcome her into office and share ideas on areas of mutual interest that benefit shippers and the country at large.

Discussions bordered around the reduction in customs barriers on the transit corridors, mandatory joint inspection by regulatory agencies at the ports, implementation of the 100% paperless system of the port operations, the Boankra inland port, CILT education and an invitation for the CEO as well as GSA staff to take up membership of the institute.

Mr. Ebo Hammond commended the CEO and her staff for the role they played in the implementation of the 100% paperless system and the plans they have that will accrue to the benefit of the shipper. These and other initiatives are bound to make Ghana more competitive and open to more investment opportunities.

On her part, the CEO of the GSA, Ms. Benonita Bismarck, appreciated the efforts by her predecessor Dr. Mbiah and thanked the CILT for extending its hand of support. She mentioned that it is important to protect the public purse, promote the interests of the shipper and ensure that there is value for money in every area of investment. She indicated they have a continuous engagement with stakeholders including the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority, Ghana Police among others, who have been supportive in the implementation of initiatives including the removal of barriers in transit. Education, for her is important for any organisation as it not only motivates but broadens horizon. It is therefore important to keep staff abreast with trends. Finally, she indicated her readiness to keep the collaboration between both institutions alive.

Also present at the meeting from the GSA were Mr. Peter Brakwah, Head of Finance and Mr. Charles Sey, Takoradi Branch Manager who is a member of the institute. On the side of the CILT, Mr. Lackson Legah, Executive Secretary, Mr. Mark Amoamah, Vice President- Education and Professional Development, Mr. David Gray, Vice President- Air, Mr. Nlaliban Wujangi, Public Affairs Officer and Mr. Frank Osei, Administrative Officer.
