How a Ghanaian Logistics Company Transformed QHSE with Effivity Pro

How a Ghanaian Logistics Company Transformed QHSE with Effivity Pro

The global logistics industry, valued at 8.4 trillion euros, is poised for rapid growth, with projections showing an increase of 17.6% by 2027. This growth hints at a thriving sector ripe with opportunities. However, like any opportunity-rich market, to stand out, businesses have to compete to achieve the highest quality, health, safety and environment-based QHSE requirements.

In Ghana, a leading ocean freight forwarding company has recognized the need to strengthen its QHSE processes and systems while focusing on expansion and excellence in its services. They chose to address these challenges with the help of QHSE software and automate their compliance processes.

The Effivity team responded with a customized approach by utilizing the advanced capabilities of our Effivity Pro Software. This allowed us to upgrade the company’s ability to meet global QHSE requirements with our QMS software and other technology-based solutions.

Ghana-Based Company

The Ghanaian-owned company in question operates in the competitive logistics sector and provides a range of services, including ocean freight forwarding, air freight, husbandry and marine. With the discovery of oil off Ghana’s shores, the demand for transportation and logistics service providers in the region has skyrocketed.

As the company expands, it needs to manage compliance with stringent QHSE standards while meeting the needs of the industry.

Challenges Faced

Some of the challenges faced by the Ghana-based company were:

  • The company had to monitor and meet stringent QHSE requirements and ensure ISO compliance. This was necessary to maintain safety and quality while staying compliant.
  • With rapid growth and an increase in logistics demands, the company needed to expand its operational capacity while maintaining high service standards. Executing such an operation required strategy management and proper resource allocation.
  • The logistics industry produces large amounts of data as it maintains data on tracking shipments alongside detailed compliance and efficiency records. Handling huge data sets and documentation manually was yet another challenge faced.
  • As regulations and technologies evolved, keeping the workforce updated was yet another challenge. The company had to develop ongoing training programs that were comprehensive and adaptable to changing QHSE requirements.
  • The integration of new software required careful planning to ensure compatibility with existing systems and minimal disruption.
