MACKENZIE MARITIME (EA) LTD
Mackenzie Maritime replaces Gain Hauliers Ltd which was established as the transport wing of Grain Bulk Handlers with a clear purpose of supplementing local transport which was often in short supply and impeding efficient deliveries from the terminal. The difference is that Mackenzie Maritime is a private affiliate company covering both local and long haul transport including transit operations as well as providing C&F and warehousing services.
The company’s objective is to facilitate clearing and transport logistics by minimizing delays in the supply chain.
Services are wide ranging and include:
- Clearing and forwarding
- Local shunting to various destinations
- Warehousing of bagged and general cargo
- Local shunting of containers to various depots
- Hire of mobile cranes and lifts
- Transportation of bulk or bagged cargo to destinations outside Mombasa by road or rail.
The company fleet consists of 20 Mercedes Benz AXOR tractor trailer units which are primarily used for local shunting business within Mombasa environs for all types of cargoes; bagged, bulk, containers and project cargoes and have a further fleet of 20 Renault KERAX trucks for cross country transport. These trucks also built for carriage of all types of cargoes and packages.
The company now intends to venture into other areas of transport namely LPG Tanks and liquid products and is already communicating with reliable truck manufacturers and suppliers.
In the interest of improving service delivery, Mackenzie Maritime (EA) Limited has recently purchased some prime property in the industrial hub of Mombasa to cater for warehousing and storage of all types of cargoes. The warehouses are fully operational with a functional railway siding. Other warehouse locations have been taken on a long lease basis. The company currently boasts of a total floor space of 500,000 square foot for both local and transit cargoes. It also operates a yard providing open storage facilities for ore, clinker, steel as well as containers.
