Members of the Ghana National Petroleum Tanker Drivers Association have protested against the implementation of the new Electronic Cargo Tracking System by the National Petroleum Authority, NPA.
The Electronic Cargo Tracking System and the National Command Centre from the National Petroleum Authority was launched in Accra in January this year to improve the efficiency of NPA in the monitoring of Bulk Roads Vehicles nationwide.
The move is further aimed at eliminating or reducing illicit activities associated with the transportation of petroleum products across the country. The Command Centre is fully with computers, and vehicle tracking devices.
However, the drivers gathered at some fuel depots in Tema to kick against the system which took effect on April 1, 2020.
