The Chief Executive Officer of Kanshipp Ghana Limited, Mr. Seth Effah Hills has bemoaned the unstable internet at the port as it is hindering the smooth operation of the paperless port clearing system which was implemented by the government in the last quarter of 2017.
He applauded the government for the initiative but was quick to add that if measures are not put in place to see to it that internet service at the port is always stable, the government would have invested for nothing.
It would be recalled that the Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia claimed that an initial assessment of the implementation of the paperless system at the country’s ports, showed a revenue collection improvement of 56 percent.
According to him, revenue at the ports increased from GHc130 million in the first week of September 2016, to GHc213 million in the same period for 2017.
Mr. Effah Hills on the claims of the vice president said the government would mobilize more revenue if the issue of the unstable internet from the Internet Service Providers are looked at.
The government began the implementation of the paperless clearing system on September 1, 2017, to speed up the process of clearing goods from two or more weeks to four hours, and ensure order at the port, whilst blocking loopholes.
Kanshipp Ghana limited, with over eighteen years’ experience in the forwarding, warehousing and ex-warehousing, export and import, general merchants, transit and air freight services, has acquitted itself creditably within the industry.
It did not come as a surprise when the company won the Freight Forwarding Company and the Socially Responsible Company of the year during the Ghana Maritime and Shipping Awards in 2017.
