NEW DIRECTIVE IN KENYA DISTURBS ALL THE CARGO TRAFFIC

News Comments Off on NEW DIRECTIVE IN KENYA DISTURBS ALL THE CARGO TRAFFIC

Kenya Railways (KR) has shrugged off concerns raised by a section of shippers on the directive compelling upcountry and landlocked country importers to use the standard gauge railway (SGR).

 

The government has now made it clear that there is no going back on the directive saying it is the only way of ensuring a smooth flow of cargo to inland container depot (ICD) for the benefit of all players in the sector.

 

Importers based in the capital city and locations beyond it have been ordered to start collecting their cargo from Nairobi’s ICD in Embakasi instead of Mombasa port.

 

The new directive comes barely two weeks after the government denied claims by shippers that it was trying to force them to use SGR despite poor infrastructure links at the ICD.

 

The Nairobi section of the SGR, completed last year at a princely Sh327 billion cost launched its freight service in January but had to suspend the daily service amid dwindling cargo volumes.

 

We have learnt that cargo shortage has hit severely the standard gauge railway’s goods haulage business, could it be the reason behind it all?

 

According to our local DPS agent, this new directive caused very huge delays for cargo transit though Kenya and especially for the cargoes coming from the neighbor countries like Uganda.
