For smaller shipments, Less than Container Load (LCL) or groupage is an excellent cost-effective alternative to airfreight and transit times can be surprisingly fast (e.g. Europe to Tema is around 18 days) which means that often the customer’s delivery time-scale can be met with all the security of container shipping, but without the high cost of airfreight.
Once the container arrives in port, we handle the transfer, warehousing and storage, de-consolidation of the containers and liaison with clients for final onward delivery or collection.
Three days a week OMA operates a regional road shuttle for LCL and Airfreight clients with goods arriving at Tema port or Kotoka airport. The shuttle transfers shipments quickly and efficiently between Tema/Accra/Takoradi and Tarkwa/ Bogosu / Obuasi.
