Freight service starts on Kenya’s standard gauge railway

Tags: ,


The first rail freight service has been launched on Kenya’s 472km standard gauge railway between the capital of Nairobi and the coastal city of Mombassa.

The 52-wagon train carried 104 freight containers, which is almost the equivalent amount of cargo to that which is transported daily between the two cities by trucks, according to president Uhuru Kenyatta.

Departing Mombassa at 5:45am on January 1, 2018, the inaugural Madaraka Freight Service arrived at the new Inland Container Depot, Nairobi, at 2:40pm.

President Kenyatta said that the service would make it easier to “do business in the country” by reducing the cost of transporting goods and the number of delays.
