From March 2021, tariffs on imports and exports of cargo will see an increase at the various ports in Ghana.
This follows an announcement by the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority.
The first announcement of an increase in port tariffs was made in July 2020, but was later suspended in September.
But according to a recent statement issued by the Ports and Harbours Authority, both Tema and Takoradi ports will see an upward revision on containerized cargoes.
The statement says the revised rates will be applied to both ports “in order to streamline the administration of the port tariffs and to avoid dual tariffs regime between the port of Tema and the port of Takoradi”.
“It shall also apply to container operations at Terminal 1 and 2 in the port of Tema,” the statement added.
Taking effect from March, port dues on cargo will cost US$10 per TEU, stevedoring charges will be US$15 per TEU, craneage and terminal handling charges will be US$5 per TEU each.
