Truckers claim SGR favored in cargo allocation


Road transporters have accused the state of being in favor of Standard Gauge Railway in Cargo allocation at the Mombasa port and now want the government to give directions on the formal sharing of cargo between truckers and Standard Gauge Railway (SGR).

The transporters have written to Kenya Ports Authority acting Managing Director John Mwangemi, through their lobby Kenya Transporters Association, asking him to reverse earlier notices to shipping lines and agents which directed that cargo to be transferred from the port by rail.

KPA management, however, said the cargo was being shared and operating smoothly, although KTA and several port stakeholders including truckers claimed yesterday that, SGR was still being favored in the allocation of cargo despite the September court ruling that it should be shared with road transporters.
