KR Managing Director AK Maina witnessed the offloading on Saturday. "We have a team working round the clock to ensure all aspects of freight operations are in place. The inland container depot at Embakasi, which is a key installation for Kenya's railway operations, is on course for completion by September of this year," Maina said.

The SGR line between Mombasa and Nairobi has been in use for slightly over a month.
