DEATH OF CFS: Container Freight Stations ‘apprehensive as businesses die’
KTN News Aug 27,2018
Apprehension is fast catching up with Container Freight Stations based in Mombasa on what has been described as a scheme to push them out of business. The container handling facilities with an estimated investment of over Ksh 20 billion say they are facing tough times as imports now get channeled directly through the SGR to Nairobi thereby cutting them off . On the flip side while some argue that SGR has injected efficiency and speed, there is growing fear that many in Mombasa will lose their jobs and the economy in the coastal city will sink.
