As the first licensed operator for export handling services in Kenya, MCT has already handled several transit export consignments successfully, the latest being a shipment of leather from Uganda.
Using its existing facilities, MCT provides short term storage of export shipments from different sources to allow for consolidation. These shipments undergo customs and other regulatory procedures through the One-Stop Documentation Centre at MCT. The shipments are then grouped and transferred as a convoy to the Port just in time for vessel loading and this facilitates efficient use of Port facilities and equipment.
Over 141,000 TEUs were exported through the port of Mombasa in 2018, with 77% originating from Kenya and 23% from the rest of the region.
