During the fourth Ghana Business Awards (GBA) held on Friday, October 29, 2021, Ghana Link Ltd., a company providing the integrated customs system (ICUMS) technical administration service, received “Indigenous Company of the Year” and “Excellence in Business” awards by demonstrating its leading position in trade facilitation.
ICUMS connects freight forwarders, courier company, government ministries and regulatory entities such as Ghana Food and Drug Authority, Environmental Protection Agency, etc., and also including other relevant actors in cross-border trade. ICUMS managed by Ghana Link has been provisioned to freight forwarders, importers, exporters, port operator and other trade operators as the best tool to reduce the long existing operational process. It has also managed to increase the income for the government through the points of entry into the country by land, sea, air and especially the port. President of Ghana Link Ltd.
