The operations of GTMS in Liberia is so pivotal because the company has not only pre-informed ports of expected cargoes and all other security measures, but has helped to better scrutinize cargo entering the nation’s ports, in compliance with the International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) Code Part B of the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention.

As President Boakai fights to meet his ARREST Agenda, GTMS serves as a major contributor to raising domestic resources for implementation of the agenda. Hence, we call on the Government of Liberia, led by His Excellency Joseph Boakai to expeditiously ratify the GTMS Agreement. We call for urgency on the part of the Government of Liberia to do the 2nd Amendment on the Global Tracking Maritime Solution (GTMS) and the Republic of Liberia Agreement”, the statement concluded.
