With an aim to improve operations and efficiency across the ports in Ghana, Meridian Port Services (MPS) is set to make a new investment into innovative port technology. The investment includes an investment in new gantry cranes for the expansion of Tema Port. MPS noted that a sum of $82 million will be required to purchase the new equipment, which is expected to be delivered at the expanded Tema Port by December of 2018.
Shipping lines are already deploying the largest vessels that can dock along the West African routes; therefore, the MPS expanded infrastructure capacity, coupled with its renowned efficiency, will certainly create new opportunities for the shipping lines at the center of the world.- CEO, Meridian Port Services
The Tema port is currently being operated by MPS, which is a joint venture between the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), Meridian Port Holdings, APM Terminals and Bolloré Transport & Logistics.
