Another successful year for Portside

On behalf of the entire Portside crew, we wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a great New Year! We want to thank you for the successful collaboration this year and we hope we can continue in achieving a prosperous new year together. Our year has been quite busy with many great projects, we would like to give you a summary of the highlights of previous year, here at Portside.

Growth at Portside is noticeable

This year we have been receiving a monthly arrival of Clover Ace in Tema harbor. This transport consists of 200 meters in length and about 12 stories high cargo filled with rolling equipment such as cars, excavators and trucks. This monthly NMT transit service connects Europe with Africa and represents the growing business with Ghana.

The growth of Portside also allows us to expand our employees, have you met our newest member Betina Dadzie yet? She is Portside’s new Sales manager and she will help Portside to continue improving our services to our clients and stakeholders. Her experiences and dedication will definitely add value to Portside in a trouble free and fast transporting processes.

Portside was also nominated for ‘Terminal of the Year’ by the jury of Ghana Shippers Awards. We were honored to be nominated for this award due to our Washing Station for containers. Portside enables containers and tanks to be quickly cleaned and prepared for the next transport.

Portside shows its power by shipping heavy rolling machinery halfway across the world.

In October, Portside International shipped the Kobelco crawler crane CKE 1350 all the way from Breda, in The Netherlands to Takoradi in Ghana. Also, In the beginning of the year Portside transported many heavy machines; lift crawler cranes, drilling equipment, excavators and containers on liner RoRo. Portside knows like no other how to carefully monitor these grand and heavy transportations and guarantee a successful delivery.
