“All consumers have to do is to first register with an exchange point in their area using the Ghana Card to create a database to enable the cylinders to be tracked”

About CRM Model

The CRM is a distribution system in which a consumer brings an empty cylinder to an exchange point in return for a filled cylinder, and the empty one is taken to a bottling plant, filled, and brought back for pick up by other consumers.

The model, NPA has emphasized was designed to reduce accidents at gas filling points in communal and residential areas.
