The Volta Lake Transport Company (VLTC), incorporated in 1970, operates river transportation for passengers, bulk haulage of petroleum products and significant quantities of cement and cross-lake ferry services along the Volta Lake. As part of VLTC’s re-evaluation of strategies to attract funding to improve its operations, it plans to overhaul its aged and faulty vessels to improve efficiency and subsequently reduce the turn-around time for its services and operations. It has also considered acquiring or leasing additional barges to increase its capacity and fleet to enable it attract a larger client base.
The VLTC also plans to engage the Government of Ghana in exploring the synergies and commercial benefits of the intended Tema-Akosombo railway line and the Eastern Corridor Multi-Modal Transport Project (ECMMTP). This is to attract new markets and business opportunities that will increase productivity in port and transit services.
