When completed, the facility which would be sitting on a 4acre of land will accommodate 3500 various types of vehicles.
The facility is also located outside of the port of Takoradi to make space for the massive expansion works being undertaken at the Port.
Richard Acquah, Monitoring Manager, Takoradi Port said the port is receiving new volumes of businesses, hence, the need to free the port space for other essential businesses.
“One of these is to move such activities like receiving vehicles inside the port to an off dock terminal, so that we can make way for other businesses that are coming in,” he noted.
Collins Oppong Asante, Terminal Manager Safe Bond Company limited said the facility will start receiving vehicles from May this year.
He said the facility will make the clearance of cars at the Port less cumbersome.
He also added that the facility will be secured in order to prevent intruders.
“Currently, we have installed electronic fencing around the walls and we intend to provide security towers. We have also contracted a company to give us CCTV cameras in addition to the human surveillance which will all augment to provide safe security over here,” he said.
The Principal Public Relations Officer of the Takoradi Port, Peter Bediako said the facility when completed will be a one stop shop for potential customers who would be coming for their vehicles in the Port.
“There will be ease of clearance in the port, people would not spend much time around, once the car is cleared from the port its driven here you come here. Once the duties and other things are paid its facilitated within the shortest possible time,” he noted.
