LAVAL, Que. — Mercator Transport Group Corporation has opened a new subsidiary in Ghana, Africa. The new company, know as Mercator Ghana, is located in the Port of Tema, at Accra’s International Airport and in Takoradi’s industrial zone.
Company officials say that increasing demand for the African continent, including its natural resources sector, such as oil and mining, as well as large UN flows, justified Mercator Transport’s expansion in that area.
The Ghanian subsidiary’s operations will be managed by Sudarsanan Pankajakshan, who will will act as president of the company. Before joining Mercator Transport, Pankajakshan occupied numerous management positions in Africa and the Middle-East with a major company specializing in international transport and logistics organization.
“Africa has become an important stake for our clients. Mercator Ghana will allow us to efficiently address our clients’ specific and growing needs on the western part of the continent,” said Jean-Pierre Apélian, president and CEO of Mercator Transport.
