KPA Aims To Boost Capacity Of Dry Ports

News: The Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) has initiated a three-year programme in a bid to revamp and boost capacity at its dilapidated dry ports in Nairobi and Kisumu. The move comes as the government has decided to construct a new standard gauge railway (SGR), which is likely to boost transit cargo with Nairobi, Kisumu and Malaba being the chief drop-off points. KPA also intends to increase its current holding capacity in Nairobi Inland Container Depot to serve an additional 100,000 twenty-foot equivalent units. The depot expansion will enable the authority to tap into the expected opportunities following the introduction of the SGR.
