In a statement issued by KRA Commissioner General James Mburu, all imported cargo for delivery to Nairobi shall now be conveyed by the Standard Gauge Railway and cleared at the Inland Container Depot from August 7.

All imported cargo intended for Mombasa and its environs will also need clearance at the Port of Mombasa.
