The Postal and Courier Services Regulatory Commission on Monday announced to the general public and users of courier services in particular that it had revoked the licences of 19 courier companies with effect from January 1, 2012.
In a statement issued in Accra by Mr Samuel Kojo Intsiaba, Executive Secretary of the Commission, said the decision to revoke the licences followed the failure of the affected companies to comply with the conditions of licence in accordance with Section 21 of the Postal and Courier Services Regulatory Commission Act, 2003 (Act 649).
"For the avoidance of doubt, the affected companies, either failed to utilise their licences, defaulted in payment of licence renewal fees or were placed under liquidation," it added.
By the revocation, the affected companies cannot undertake or engage in courier operation in any part of the country.
"The Commission wishes to reiterate its resolve to ensure strict adherence to Act 649 while protecting consumers against poor quality of service. It is therefore, reminding all courier operators to take necessary steps to regularise their operations or risk sanctions."
The affected companies are DPS Company Limited, Eda Express Services Limited, Beacon Logistics Limited, Speedlink Cargo Services Limited, Bridge Direct Company Limited, World Express International Limited, BKB Courier (Ghana) Limited, 1st Choice Express, A-Men Express Limited, Euni-manuel Company Limited.
The rest were, Box Express Limited, US Ghana Express Limited, Black Star Courier Services, Inter-Global Limited, MS Ex Limited, Tramsco Shipping Limited, Ligure International Limited, Cross Ocean Agencies Limited and TNT Express Worldwide.
