The Greater Accra Shipper Committee has been schooled on an initiative called Air Cargo and bill security by the Ghana Civil Aviation.
The programme is expected to help regulate various stakeholders in the shipping industry so as to ensure the safety and security of cargoes.
The Greater Accra shipper committee is made up of exporters and importers who meet regularly to discuss issues of concern to them relating to trade, transportation, claims to damage to their cargo, shipping among others.
The 96th meeting was focused on getting members to understand the work of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority on initiatives put in place to ensure the safety and security of their cargo and measures put in place to enhance the facilitation of their trade.
Other issues discussed included an update on the world trade organisation trade facilitation agreement.
A representative from the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority said the Air Cargo and bill security programme will ensure the speedy delivery of cargo to shippers.
A former President of the Greater Accra Shipper Committee said the committee was committed to addressing challenges that confronted shippers in the plying of their trade.
