Importers advised on how to cut SGR transport costs

The Kenya Ship Agents Association (KSAA) Chief Executives Juma Tellah said compared to the Merchant Haulage Product (MHP), the TBL is a better option in the rail transport.

In the TBL import mode, the shipping line takes responsibility to transport cargo to the final destination, while in the MHP mode, responsibility of the shipping line ends upon discharge of the container at the Port.

The government embarked on a move to drive cargo to the Mombasa-Nairobi SGR, which was completed last year at a cost of Sh327 billion.
