Import Ghana

The Republic of Ghana, or just Ghana, borders Ivory Coast in the west of Africa. The country is home to 24 Million people with Accra as it capital.

The word Ghana means “warrior king” and reflects the ancient Empire of Ghana, once covering much of West Africa. The nation is one of the world’s largest cocoa producers, much of which is exported by sea from the main sea port of Tema.

Importers of desktops and laptops from Accra and other areas of Ghana have a keen understanding of their domestic market and the need for good quality products at low prices. Ghanaians have a strong affinity towards UK products and usually find HP and Dell laptops from the UK sell particularly well. Demand for desktop PCs remains consistent with a trend towards Core 2 Duo and Dual Core processors over older Pentium 4, single core processors.

Laptops of all types continue to be popular with Ghanaians looking to import to Ghana. HP, Dell and Toshiba laptops with webcam sell very quickly along with cheaper laptops from brands such as Packard Bell or Acer.

Goods can be sent to Ghana by Sea or Air. Ghanaian ports and airports include Accra Airport plus Tema sea port. Many freight companies specialise in shipping goods to Ghana, offering weekly services at low costs. Customers interested in using a separate freight forwarder should first establish that these companies will be able to provide proof of shipment in the form of an airway bill or bill of laden; without this it is not possible for customers to recover any UK VAT incurred.

Some buyers prefer to take advantage of Stock Sourcing’s door to door service in association with trusted specialist Ghanaian freight forwarders. These rates allow importers to see their entire costs up front including costs for stock, shipping, tax and local delivery within Accra city limits.
