CEO Receives “Manager Of The Year” Award From European Business Assembly
It is long etched into history that Ghana is the ‘Gateway to Africa’ and with a port that is able to accommodate and grow along with the economic fortunes of the Sub-region, the Ghana Ports & Harbours Authority is actively spearheading the development of the Tema port, increasing both its operational area and heavy lift capabilities. The Authority’s efforts are being supported by stakeholder partners such as RedSea Maritime, a terminal operator licensed by Ghana Ports & Harbours Authority to handle conventional general cargo at the Tema port.
The Chief Executive Officer Raymond Snowden teamed up with like-minded Harry Zakkour and under their direction, RedSea Maritime has grown into a Ghanaian success story in 5 years of its operation. RedSea has succeeded in changing not only the way people perceive terminal operations in Ghana but has also introduced innovation and best practices into terminal operations in the Port of Tema. Some of the innovative changes are the introduction of the use of technology and the moves towards the acquisition of ISO 9001 Certification to streamline our service delivery. RedSea Maritime has recently appointed an officer dedicated to enhancing our customer services and external relations.
Raymond Snowden has not only cut across the Ghanaian market as an industry leader but also been recognized by the European Business Assembly. He recently picked up the award for the Manager of the Year and this comes on the back of extensive rebranding of the company that has grown from a start-up to an industry player with more than enough capability to take maritime services to the next level.
RedSea Maritime unveiled a new logo that embodies the direction and future of the company as a ‘RISING SUN’. This represents diversity and represents the new direction the company is taking as it expands into being a ‘one stop’ service provider at the Tema Port. RedSea Maritime can be contacted for the following services: haulage, logistics management, freight forwarding and warehousing among others.
In line with its quest to add value to the industry, RedSea Maritime recently co-sponsored the 15th Intermodal Africa Conference. Intermodal Africa is the biggest annual Container Ports and Terminal Operations Exhibition and Conference in Africa. Covering West and Central Africa, it was a two days Conference Programme featuring 30 world-class conference speakers addressing topical issues and challenges on global transportation and logistics attended by a gathering of 400 senior executive industry players.
This is one of many initiatives that RedSea Maritime is driving as it supports Ghana live up to its billing as the “Gateway to Africa”. For Ghana to maintain its place as the champion of African excellence, there is the need for industry and thought leaders like RedSea Maritime Services to take the bold steps in supporting the Ghana Ports & Harbours Authority’s admirable efforts to meet Ghana’s future demand for port activities in a world-class port environment.
