This dissertation was aimed at studying the participation of Private Stevedoring Companies (PSCs) in Port of Tema with the specific objective of identifying the differences in stevedoring operations between private and public stevedores, enquiring about the impact the participation of PSCs on the performance with respect to cargo handling and finding out the challenges confronting PSCs in the Port of Tema and how they mitigate them.
Using qualitative research method and research instruments of questionnaires and personal interviews amongst the samples from the public stevedoring company, 10 PSCs, 5 major shipping lines/agencies and 50 shippers operating in the Port of Tema, it was found (amongst others) that although the activities of the private stevedores, excluding MPS stevedore, do not appear to perform better than the other stevedoring companies, their emergence has created the room for GPHA to concentrate on its share of handling 25% stevedoring to develop at a satisfactory rate to the extent of having the opportunity to rent out equipment and machineries.
The study recommended amongst others that all the PSCs should be encouraged to pool resources together in a partnership towards investing into equipment and machineries, and automation to help solve the challenge of inadequate logistics for operation and the difficulty in renting equipment and machineries.
