Paperless Port Project

The government implemented a paperless port operations system which is aimed at increasing efficiency at the ports by reducing the number of hours spent in clearing goods and increasing tax revenue.

The aim is to use increased technology and improved infrastructure and human resources to achieve a reduced average number of hours that shipping vessels spend at the ports, to four to eight hours from the recorded average of one hundred and three hours in 2016.

Increased port efficiency is expected to increase revenue mobilisation and reduce the stress associated with clearing goods while opening up the ports to more business, since 80% of Ghana’s trade volumes are currently done through sea transportation.
