KENYA'S MOMBASA PORT: 24 HOUR DUTY ROSTER

Mombasa Port has started clearing transit cargo around the clock to decongest the facility, managing director Abdalla Mwaruwa has said.

The 24-hour rule also allows cargo to be transported to the KPA’s inland container depots in Nairobi, Kisumu and Eldoret for collection.

Mr Mwaruwa said all cases of cargo delayed due to post-election violence had been considered for a waiver of storage charges. All other pending cases, he added, would be reviewed on a case by case basis.

He assured Ugandan importers that all efforts were being made to ensure that their cargo moved smoothly.
