BOST commits to supply petroleum products to West African countries
Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Co. Ltd (BOST), has affirmed its commitment to continue to supply petroleum products to Burkina Faso through SONABY, a Burkinabe state owned company, responsible for procurement of petroleum products for that country.
Additionally, BOST will also be extending the supply to Mali and Niger very soon, Mr. Alfred Obeng, Managing Director, BOST, has said.
He was speaking when he and his management team embarked on a two-day tour of the Northern Region to inspect BOST depots in Bolgatanga, Savelugu, Buipe and Debre.
During the visit, the MD also mentioned the construction of a car park at Buipe and Bolaga depots as Debre also gets a new tank farm to store more products in times of low water levels in the Volta Lake at Buipe.
To augment the operations at the Kumasi terminal, Mr. Obeng also hinted of a new terminal building at Bibiani in the Western Region.
The tour was rounded up with a visit to the Buipe Wura, Abdulai JinaporII where the MD was reminded of BOST’s promise to put up a six-unit dormitory block for the Buipe Senior High School some years ago.
He responded by assuring the Buipe Wura and his elders that, BOST would fulfil its promise under his leadership.
“The construction of the dormitory is a major project in terms of BOST’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) to the people of Buipe in particular and the entire country in general,” he affirmed.
Meanwhile, BOST’S desire to increase trade profit in the coming years has led to the introduction of a Dynamics AX 2012R3 ERP Solution to be used by staff to better align, simplify and standardise the organisation’s processes leading to a more consistent and cost efficient practices, for an expected profit margin.
The company’s target for next year is very high and management is optimistic to achieve it despite the huge debt the current administration inherited from “previous administration”.
Mr Obeng promised that BOST would offer the best for the entire populace as the country is prepared for better years ahead.
