Naivasha Inland Container Depot- Kenya Ports Authority

It was on the 17th of December last year when the Naivasha Inland Container Depot (ICD) swung open its doors.

Presided by Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta, the depot commonly known as the Naivasha ICD was launched to enhance Kenya’s cargo handling capacity and significantly contribute to the sustainable development of our country’s and regional economies.

Currently, business is steadily picking up at the newly opened Naivasha Inland Container Depot with all the Government Agencies led by the Kenya Ports Authority already settled on the ground to offer services to ensure smooth cargo off-take.

The other agencies on the site include the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) and Kenya Railways Corporation. Meanwhile regional Customs Authorities namely Uganda Revenue Authority, Rwanda Revenue Authority, Burundi Revenue Authority and South Sudan Revenue Authority are also present.
