Centralized Operations at KPA Drive Port Efficiency
Cargo dwell time at the Port of Mombasa has reduced from an average of 5.6 days in December 2020 to 4.6 days in January 2021.
This follows a raft of strategic operational changes implemented by the Authority. Recently KPA took over SGR operations at Port Reitz Yard previously undertaken by Kenya Railways Operator and reorganized all railtainer operational process with logistics partners, hence increasing end-to-end efficiency in the port operations.
Dangerous cargo (DG) loading which was previously experiencing great delays due to dedicating only one loading zone at CT1 has now been improved by dedicating an additional loading point at Portreitz yard thus reducing the transfer distance from CT2 to CT1 and reducing evacuation time of DG Containers.
