The Port of Tema contributes significantly to the economic growth of Ghana. As Ghana’s biggest port, we have invested millions of dollars in port infrastructure to improve our operational efficiency in order to meet the growing demands of maritime trade and logistics supply chain.
Our goal is to transform Tema Port into the leading container hub in West Africa. The construction of our 3.5 million TEU container terminal is ongoing and the first two berths will be completed by the middle of 2019. Technological innovations have been introduced in our port operations and processes and this has enhanced the quality of services provided to our customers.
Tema Port operates an Integrated Management System in line with ISO 14001:2015 (environmental management), ISO 9001:2015 (quality management) and OHSAS 18001:2007 (occupational health and safety). We are in the process of implementing Jade Master Terminal System to enhance our operational activities. A paperless port clearance process, introduced in September 2017, has reduced cargo clearance time and also improved cargo dwell time in the port.
Tema Port is the gateway to our landlocked neighbours i.e. Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger. Our transit corridors have been freed of most of the inspection barriers which hitherto caused unnecessary delays and increased the cost of transportation to the landlocked countries. We will continue to provide quality services and high operational standards in our operations to make Tema Port the most efficient port in the sub-region.
