ALLSHIP LOGISTICS Limited, one of the country's foremost freight forwarders has held its annual thanksgiving service with a call on management and staff to continue to trust in God and work hard as this is the surest way for the company to survive the current global economic crisis.
Rev. Fr. Prince E. Adelaayitar of Christ The King Catholic Church, who gave this advice at the service held in Accra over the weekend, noted that it is important for owners of businesses to have faith in God their creator and to carry out their business activities in a manner that would move the country and its economy forward.
He congratulated management and workers for another successful year and urged them to apply the principles of honesty, transparency and hardwork in all aspects of their daily lives.
Rev.Fr. Prince E. Adelaayitar led the management and workers in prayer to give thanks to God for seeing them through another year in their freight forwarding business.
In an interview with CITY&BUSINESS GUIDE, Robert Kingsford Kutin, Managing Director of the company who doubles as president of the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders (GIFF) remarked that Allship was founded some 19 years ago and has grown to become one of the best freight forwarding companies in the country.
He said his outfit has been able to survive the challenges in the industry because both management and workers of the company believe in God and are committed to rendering great services to their clients.
“Looking back on the year and how Allship has faired inspite of the difficulties we faced in carrying out our freight forwarding business, we can only choose a day to thank God and that is exactly what we are doing here today,” Mr. Kutin said.
Expanding on some of the challenges his company faces, Mr. Kutin said that charging of unauthorized fees is hampering the progress of the industry.
He said his outfit which is a corporate member of GIFF is equally affected by all other activities retarding the progress of the industry.
He appealed to the government to allow the Customs, Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) to take over the core functions of classification and evaluation of imported goods.
