Freight Forwarders at the Tema port say although they expect some initial challenges in the upcoming ICUMS for the single window operations, they remain confident in the new system.

The Integrated Customs Management Systems (ICUMS) comes online after June 1, 2020, when Ghana Community Network Service Limited (GCNet) and West Blue cease operations at the country’s ports.

The Vice-Chairman of the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders, Johnny Mantey, said Wednesday that on paper the ICUMS – which was built by Korea Customs to be Ghana’s version of the Universal Pass (UNI-PASS) – looks good.
