Kenya Railway Customers to track cargo on online

SGR

Kenya Railways has opened an online portal to track cargo on the standard gauge railway.

This comes as the state agency continues to boost efficiency of its cargo services after months of push and pull with cargo operators.

The portal will track cargo and notify cargo owners of the arrival of goods at the Inland container terminal in Embakasi.

The move comes barely a week after the Kenya Ports Authority lowered handling fees at the ICD to lure cargo owners and clearing agents.

The SGR cargo services was launched in December but has been off to a slow start as cargo owners accused the government of inefficiencies that did not warrant the use of the service.

The Kenyan government plans to transport 40 percent of cargo from the port of Mombasa using the SGR.
