The paperless system which took off smoothly on Saturday, September 2, 2017, saw avery different twist on Monday, September 4, as agents who trooped the Revenue Centre of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) to make payments to clear their goods looked very frustrated about the system.
Some of the agents who could not hide their frustration told Kasapa News that the system would have worked effectively if government had been a little patient.
Mr. Kweku Okyere Darko, National Technical Committee Member of the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders (GIFF) also said that government should have given stakeholders enough time for piloting to make understanding of the system easy for all.
Although the paperless system is facing some challenges at the initial stages, Mr. Okyere Darko was optimistic that the new system will pick up as time goes on.
