World Confederation of Businesses honors Kanshipp Ghana Limited

The World Confederation of Businesses (WORLDCOB), has honoured Kanshipp Ghana Limited, one of the key companies in the freight forwarding industry.

The award is in recognition of Kanshipp Ghana Ltd’s commitment to upholding business excellence in the freight forwarding industry.

WORLDCOB is a leading international organisation that encourages worldwide business development and therefore recognises the efforts of companies for their excellence in business practice in accordance with international standards.

As part of the ceremony, Mr James Aboagye, the Ashanti Regional Director, Kanshipp Ghana Ltd and Mr Yaw Owusu, Transport Manager, Kanshipp Ghana Ltd, also received special awards for their commitment and contributions to spearhead the objectives and vision of the Company.

In his remarks, Mr Nicolas Caffaro, Director of International Relations at WORLDCOB underscored the need for freight forwarders to uphold ethical standards in the discharge of their duties.

He said with regards to the criteria for awarding Kanshipp Ghana, the Company was selected due to the quality of their processes particularly in the area of clearing and forwarding.

Mr Caffaro reiterated that WORLDCOB had about 3,000 members; however this initiative was part of its corporate social responsibility, by issuing a certification to encourage businesses to strive for excellence.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, Mr Aboagye, described Kanshipp Ghana as one of a Ghanaian owned longest established and most trusted shipping agency.

He said they have been operating continuously in the region for years; a leader in providing customs brokerage, freight forwarding and logistics support in various sectors.

Mr Aboagye also called on government to help in terms of establishing a policy framework that would facilitate the work of freight forwarders at the port, adding that “again, one of our major challenges has got to do with exchange rates”.

He said businesses and their clients were both worried about the impact of the cedi’s never-ending fluctuation at the ports, and there was a need for a policy that would promote predictability, price stability and proper planning of businesses.

Mr Aboagye, however, commended the Government for the paperless port initiative, saying they acknowledge that it had helped them to receive customs classification report within 24 hours, saying previously it took three days.
