Meridian Port Services Limited (MPS) was incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Ghana in December 2002 with the commencement of operations in April 2007.
MPS is a joint venture between Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority and Meridian Port Holdings Limited, which is, in turn, a joint venture with Bolloré Transport and Logistics and APM Terminals as the two main shareholders.
The Company engages mainly in Container Terminal Operations including container stevedoring, shore handling as well as storage and delivery.
MPS is widely recognized by all shipping lines as the best performing container port in West and Central Africa. Over the years, we have considerably invested in Tema Port infrastructure, equipment and manpower training. Through these investments, MPS turned Tema Port into one of the most competitive ports in West and Central Africa and managed to significantly reduce the transports costs for importers, exporters, shipping lines and all other port users.
Our provision of world-class Container Handling services which contributes to trade facilitation and Ghana’s total throughput volume at the Port has seen us outmuscle others in the industry to become a leader in port operation services:
In April 2017, we were adjudged the Terminal Operator of the year in the maiden Ghana Maritime and Shipping Awards held in Accra, in September 2015, the Company was also adjudged the Best Performing Container Terminal Operator in West Africa & Central Africa at the African Ports Awards held in Abidjan.
MPS has created a considerable number of jobs that contribute to the social security, national health, provident funds, education schemes and also created several opportunities to outsourced services and supplies to local vendors. For many operators at MPS for instance, there has been an upgrade in their capacities and skills with a resulting upward adjustment in remuneration.
One would find many entry-level tally clerks have been transformed into vessel supervisors. This story is replicated in other departments each year because of the progressive environment in the Port operations. The end result is a highly trained and knowledgeable workforce to complement the state of the art equipment and technologically-driven systems.
To establish and operate a hub container terminal that will become the centre of excellence and the port of choice in West Africa. This will be achieved through acquisition of the most modern industry-best-equipment coupled with a dedication to constant and ongoing process and personnel improvement. To be the “best in class” container terminal in West Africa; the vision provides a basis for MPS’s strategic direction and underpins many of the decisions made by the management team. The MPS vision is in harmony with and complements the vision of our Shareholders.
To offer service par excellence with a high focus on continuous improvement. To be the consistent leader in efficient maritime service delivery in all areas of operations.
