Cotecna Ghana, signs new Destination Inspection contract

Press Release
Ghana, 13 September, 2010

On 30 August, Gateway Services Ltd, Cotecna’s subsidiary in Ghana, signed a five (5) year contract with the Government of Ghana to continue to provide Destination Inspection services (DI) under the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MOTI). The contract became effective September 1, 2010.

Cotecna operates in Ghana under its registered affiliate, Gateway Services Limited (GSL), and initiated the very first DI contract that began in April 2000. Cotecna pioneered the development and implementation of the Destination Inspection concept which has contributed to the achievement of important government objectives in Ghana, including the facilitation of trade, revenue protection and enhancement, and the modernization of Customs through training and knowledge transfer.

GSL was the first inspection company to combine valuation services, through its international network of price analysts, with computerized risk management and a powerful fixed x-ray scanner in the context of the Destination Inspection programme in Ghana.

GSL now looks forward to building on the success of the earlier DI under this new contract through the provision of services that will continue to add value to the government of Ghana.
