Port tariffs to increase in 2018

According to officials, the change has become necessary as it has been almost four years since the GPHA last reviewed its tariffs.

According to Accra-based Citi FM, the increase is due to the review of various port tariffs by the Ghana Port and Harbours Authority (GPHA).

The new tariffs are expected to be increased by between 5 and 20% of the current charges.

In doing this the GPHA HAS scheduled to engage all stakeholders before the new tariff is announced

These stakeholders include the Ship Owners and Agents Association, Ghana Shippers Authority, freight forwarders as well as GUTA for final inputs and subsequent implementation.
