Members of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) have fiercely rejected Cargo Tracking Net (CTN) which was first introduced in 2018 as a result of severe agitation of the policy within the business community.
“We [GUTA] therefore entreat the business community to ignore this directive which takes effect from November 1, 2023, until the right and relevant stakeholder engagement has been held with the business community” GUTA president, Dr. Joseph Obeng told Ghanaweb.
CTN is expected to provide data to the Ghana Customs Division and other stakeholders to enable cargo review processes in a manner that will ensure key shipment information in real time to effectively control, supervise, and manage import traffic into Ghana.
“We know ICUMS has been efficient since its implementation at the ports and so a reintroduction of the CTN would be counterproductive to the business community.
“The CTN impedes the ease, time, and cost of doing business as we have always argued over in the past. Businesses are currently experiencing serious challenges we are not going to accept a reintroduction of this counterproductive CTN policy,” the GUTA president stressed.
