Citi Business News is learning that importers and exporters are likely to pay more on tariffs at the ports effective January 2018.

This follows the revision of the various port tariffs by the Ghana Port and Harbours Authority (GPHA).

Indications are that the charges will go up between 5 and 20% when the new tariffs are introduced.

According to officials, the change has become necessary as it has been almost four years since the GPHA last reviewed its tariffs.

In line with this, the GPHA is set to engage the Ship Owners and Agents Association as well as the Ghana Shippers Authority.

Following which it will meet the importers and exporters, freight forwarders as well as GUTA for final inputs and subsequent implementation.
