Kenya: Mombasa Port celebrates a millionth container

(Standard Media)

The Port of Mombasa handled the one millionth container even as stakeholders protested government bureaucracies that have inhibited growth of transshipment trade at the facility. In 2008, Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) suspended transshipment business due to congestion occasioned by post-election violence and problems in implementation of the Kilindini Waterfront Automated Terminal Operations System (Kwatos) at the port. Last year, KPA resumed the trade after commissioning berth 19 and implementation of presidential directives that enhanced efficiency and created sufficient space at the port. Transshipment is the trade of off-loading a container from one ship at a port and loading it onto another ship to be further carried to the final port of discharge. Mombasa handles goods destined to other ports like ports of Madagascar, Somalia, Zanzibar, Maputo in Mozambique and Comoros.
