Kenya takes multi-pronged approach to streamline cargo movement
12 Feb 2018 - by
In a move to address concerns around the handling and transportation of cargo along the entire network between Mombasa and Nairobi, Kenya Railways, the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) convened a meeting with the freight community last week.
It was part of ongoing efforts to promote Kenya Railways’ new Madaraka Freight Service, which launched operations in January this year.
KRA Customs and Border Control commissioner, Julius Musyoki, gave his commitment that properly documented cargo, transported by Kenya Railways, would be cleared within six hours. The KPA also assured stakeholders of plans to construct roads connecting the new Inland Container Depot in Nairobi to the Thika superhighway, the southern by-pass and the Nairobi industrial area.
