Conship opens ultra-modern Air Freight office in Accra

 

Consolidated Shipping Agency (Conship) has opened an ultra modern office to serve as its Air Freight Operations Centre located in the newly constructed Swiss Port Building, Airport, Accra.

 

The 342sqm office, located in the north wing of the new building houses the staff of Conship’s ever growing Air Freight operations and is strategically located at the Airport to conveniently serve its customers.

 

In attendance at the short ceremony were Edith Dankwa, CEO of the B&FT, directors of the company, industry players including Kwabena Ofosu-Appiah, President of the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders (GIFF), Theophilus Ahwireng, CEO of the Petroleum Commission, and several others stakeholders.

 

Chief Executive Officer of Conship, MacDonald Chimandas Vasnani, explained that even though the company still has its corporate head office in the Silver Star Tower, Airport Enclave, Accra, “we decided to invest and move into the Swiss Port Building.”

 

He noted that the company is enthralled to be in the building because “we are right in the middle of the cargo village where all the cargo action takes place.”

Mr. Vasnani noted that since the establishment of the company, the biggest challenge has been about people but with training and guidance, the staff of the company are now its biggest assets.

 

“We have a laid-back attitude in Ghana but if you find your CEO actively involved in something you wouldn’t want to sit down so we had to build a culture and change the attitude of people. Our success has been our people. We have very loyal staff with some of them working with us for almost two decades and they are still with us and we take care of them,” he added.

Mr. Vasnani noted that banks have also been helpful to Conship. “We go to them [banks] as and when we need and they have been very supportive of us especially when we need them to guarantee our tenders and contracts. We are grateful,” he said.

 

He added that with oil and gas here to stay, Conship is investing in the industry and creating more jobs. “We have a five-acre land in the free zones in Tema and we are looking at developing it into a logistics hub where people can come in and work.”

 

Conship has moved from custom clearance to freight forwarding, transportation, to logistics and currently providing onshore support at the Takoradi Port and the FPSO. With 190 direct jobs, Conship is looking at creating more due to a new contract with Tullow Ghana.

 

Mr. Ahwireng, the Petroleum Commission boss lauded the company for been an example of how a Ghanaian company with determination and forward strategy can become a success and rub shoulders with global giants.

The company has operations in Takoradi, Tema, Accra and Chicago, Illinois in the United States of America (USA).
