BOST’s Managing Director Mr. Alfred Obeng, with his management team, embarked on a two-day working trip up north to inspect depots in Bolgatanga, Savulugu, Buipe and Debre.
During the visit, the MD affirmed continuity of BOST’s supply to Burkina Faso through SONABY – a Burkinabe state-owned company responsible for procurement of Petroleum products to Burkina Faso – which will be extended to Mali and Niger very soon.
He also mentioned the construction of a car park at Buipe and Bolgatanga depots, as Debre gets a new tank farm to store more products in times of low water level on the Volta Lake at Buipe.
To augment operations at the Kumasi terminal, the MD also hinted at building a new terminal at Bibiani in the Western Region.
The trip was rounded-up with a visit to the Buipe Wura, Abdulai Jinapor II – where the MD was reminded of BOST’s promise to put up a six-unit block to be used as dormitory at Buipe Senior High School some years ago.
The MD assured the Buipe Wura and his elders that BOST will fulfil its promise under his leadership.
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.
Meanwhile, BOST’S desire to increase trade profit in the coming years has also led to an introduction of a Dynamics AX 2012 R3 ERP Solution – to be used by staff to better align, simplify and standardise the organisation’s processes, leading to more consistent and cost-efficient practices and thus an expected profit margin. The company’s target for next year is very high, and management is optimistic of achieving it despite the huge debt inherited by the current administration from the previous one.
BOST promises to offer the best for the entire populace as it prepares to face better years ahead.
