GN Logistics, a subsidiary of Groupe Nduom and the Intercity STC (ISTC) have signed a partnership agreement that will place GN Logistics at the heart of the state transport company’s courier service.
The five-year agreement is on a Public-Private Partnership basis.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Mr Joe Hyde, the General Manager of GN Logistics underscored the need for the public sector to partner the private sector to deliver efficient services that are mutually beneficial to both entities.
‘’We at GN Logistics are overly excited about this deal, this is because we see this agreement as a means to strengthen the ties between government agencies and the private sector. We’re assuring ISTC that we will do our best so that at the end of the (5-year) contract you will not look elsewhere but will only have to renew the agreement with us’’.
On his part, the Managing Director of STC, Nana Akomea spoke highly of the demonstration of strength and capabilities of GN Logistics throughout the bidding process.
‘’We had a tall list of companies that expressed interest when the process was opened and after going through their proposals and asking the relevant questions we have realised that GN Logistics is well placed to handle the parcels people sent through’’, He said.
Nana Akomea was hopeful the agreement will signal the dawn of Public-Private Partnership where other departments of parastatals will see the need to team up with the private sector in order to maximise efficiency for the greater good of mother Ghana.
Per the agreement, GN Logistics is mandated to handle the parcel section of the STC across Ghana and into their Western African destinations, namely Abidjan, Lome Cotonou and Lagos.
