GUTA demands emergency engagement with stakeholders over port charge increment – Citi Business News


Summary short_text

"We are calling for a stakeholders meeting for us to be able to talk to GHPA to stop implementing the new charges because we did not have enough stakeholder consultations in the first place, especially when we are not in normal times," said President of GUTA, Dr. Joseph Obeng.
When the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority first announced the increment of tariffs and the upward adjustment of charges by the shipping lines, it was met with a lot of backlash from various stakeholders in the sector.
"The freight charges are also not helping. Freight charge of the 40 feet container which used to be 3,000 dollars will now be going for about 13,000 dollars. This is not the time for a port operator like GHPA to increase the handling charges and others especially when we expect the shipping lines to include all these operational charges in the freight charges, which they don't do. This is why we are calling on Government to prevail upon, that, what the shipping lines are doing to us is not in good faith, because they don't do it in other jurisdictions," Dr. Obeng added.
