The NACSUL boss named some GTMS services as real-time tracking, provision of professional warehousing activities, high security standards for cargoes, 24/7 hour support and fast and efficient delivery.

He emphasized the business climate could not have been favorable without the services of the entity.

He said the company has also employed several Liberians to senior managerial positions in its five years of operation in the country.

He then called on the government to ensure that GTMS is protected and provided a space to continue its operation in helping to strengthen the shipping industry.

The civil society group applauded the management of GTMS and implored them to continue their good work, in the interest of the country and its citizenry.
