GPHA suspends charges on uncleared cargo caused by coronavirus lockdown

1 Mins read

The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), has suspended all applicable charges that were initially imposed on goods which had not been cleared from the ports during the lockdown period.

The Authority had earlier announced that it had begun expediting the clearance process for all port users to clear their goods from the various seaports.

It also raised charges on goods which clients delayed in clearing; a development the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA), kicked against.

Meanwhile, in a recent statement, the Authority says it has directed for the suspension of all applicable charges, especially demurrage, detention and storage rent charges on cargo which have remained uncleared since the lockdown came into effect on 30th March, 2020.

GPHA in the statement explained that it took the decision in order not to jeopardize the fight against COVID-19 in the country.

The GPHA further noted that the ports are still in business.
