Global freight forwarder WeFreight has established operations in Africa with the opening of an office in Nairobi, Kenya.
The company said it also has plans to establish a presence in Mombasa as its Kenya staff, currently numbering 10, expands.
The Nairobi launch establishes a gateway for WeFreight’s air and ocean freight forwarding business in Africa.
The company’s initial focus in Kenya will be facilitation of FCL and LCL oceanfreight imports, supported by customs clearance services, plus airfreight solutions for customers requiring faster freight shipping.
In addition, WeFreight will provide project logistics services, dry bulk vessel charters, refrigerated and temperature-controlled shipping, and warehousing.
Ingo Kloepper, global managing director, WeFreight, said: “We are delighted to continue WeFreight’s expansion with the launch and opening of our new office in Kenya. As an agile leader in emerging markets logistics, our development in Kenya allows us to offer wider coverage to our customers.”
Darren Brown, WeFreight managing director, East Africa, added: “The WeFreight team in Kenya and beyond will be focused on serving our fast-growing customer base, who are now able to tap into the amazing potential that the continent of Africa offers.”
