JV Driver and Canadian Commercial Corporation celebrate completion of Ghana’s $110 million new port terminal

The Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) joins JV Driver in applauding the completion of Ghana’s new world class container handling and devanning port terminal. The USD $110 million investment from the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) will create new jobs, generate revenue, and promote economic opportunities that benefit every Ghanaian.

“CCC is proud to have partnered with JV Driver and the Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority to deliver such an important infrastructure project, whose benefits will be felt by Ghanaians for decades,” said Bobby Kwon, President and CEO of CCC.

Located in Kpone, the new port terminal includes a Devanned Car Park, Devanning Area, Empty Container Station, Container Storage and Freight Station, as well as peripheral support shops, offices, and access road.

JV Driver, in partnership with CCC, secured the international contract that resulted in the transfer of GPHA’s existing Container Handling and Devanning Terminal in Tema, to a new 40-acre site in Kpone.

“JV Driver is honoured to have been entrusted with such a complex project that will have a transformative impact on Ghana’s trade activities and broader economy,” said Todd Patterson, Senior Vice President of JV Driver.

Through a government-to-government contracting approach, CCC positions qualified Canadian exporters like JV Driver to win international contracts with governments abroad, while significantly reducing the risks associated with foreign procurement.
