    GRCL is noted for its hauling of Cocoa, Timber, Bauxite and Manganese. Before its detoriation, it was traditionally an important export corridor. Cocoa, Timber and Flour were handled on the Eastern Line through Tema Port, with the Central and Western lines handling these goods for Takoradi Port.

Freight services are basically the hub and the pivotal link of GRCL which accounts for most of the profits by the company.
