Coal Import Through Private Port Terminal Facility in Mombasa

July 2023

Earlier in the year we handled the first shipment of coal through our private port terminal facility in Mombasa.

The coal was barged directly from Mtwara, Tanzania and unloaded at the facility, where it was temporarily stored and then loaded out onto trucks for the end customer.

The project is a milestone in our operations as we look to diversify our activities and extend our services to include port-handling activities to our clients.

We faced several challenges, including optimising the handling and stacking of coal, managing the throughput of trucks into the facility, and reacting to stakeholder concerns about pollution to name a few.

Ultimately, we were able to overcome these challenges and are working with the data acquired to streamline future opportunities.
