The Mombasa office is located in what SGL regards as a “gateway to East and Central Africa”. It will work with the company’s Nairobi office, which was opened back in April 2023, to provide customers with competitive local and regional logistics solutions. 

According to SGL, Kenya’s logistics potential is increasingly growing due to improved infrastructure, including the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) connecting coastal Mombasa with inland Nairobi.

Operations manager for the new office, Michael Mnyubi, added: “Mombasa serves as a critical logistics hub for Kenya and East and Central Africa as a whole. From our own office, we can handle operations and inquiries directly without using agents, which means we can deliver improved services, efficient cargo handling and ensure timely clearance, all of which will enhance efficiency and save our customers both time and additional costs.”

Seven experienced logistics professionals will initially staff the new office to provide customers with a range of services, including Customs clearance, transhipment, and warehousing.

The opening of a second office in Kenya forms part of SGL’s wider expansion strategy in Africa, which so far includes offices in Senegal, Mali, the Ivory Coast, Togo, Benin and South Africa.
