The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Ghana - Tema Branch has organized its first Continuing Personal Development (CPD) program for the year 2015, around the theme of "Best Practices in Scanning Operations in Ghana".
The event, which took place at the GPHA Towers at a stone throw from Tema Port, was attended by professionals of the institute, mostly operating in the port environment and related services. Following welcome remarks and a short plea for membership and sponsorship from the Branch Chairman of CILT Tema, who also doubles as the National Vice-President of CILT Ghana, Mr. Kumi Adjei-Sam, the panel presented the topic from the perspective of Destination Inspection Companies (Gateway Services Ltd. and Nick T-C), Ghana Revenue Authority and Ghana Port Authorities.
The panel shared their expertise and recommendations with the participants and an active Q&A session led to several recommendations, including the removal of unnecessary bureaucracies and entities that are choking the system with delays and procedures. Pictures of the event are available at the following link.
