Postal Corporation of Kenya’s ‘Posta Cargo’ Clearing and Forwarding Service Rates

The Postal Corporation of Kenya started offering Clearing and Forwarding services as part of its ambition to diversify their offering and tap into the growing e-commerce sector rather than relying on traditional mail services alone. As a requirement, Posta Cargo is registered by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to offer clearing and forwarding services that will see customers get full logistical services for items imported through Posta Parcel and EMS services.

This comes after rumors emerged the firm was planning to partner with various e-commerce giants such as Alibaba and Amazon aimed at boosting its earnings through diversified service offerings. Most Kenyans have turned to multinational e-commerce sites to purchase items that are not readily available locally such as spare parts and other electronics. According to the firm, Posta Cargo customers will no longer have to pick their packages at KRA offices but rather have them delivered wherever they are. Postal Corporation of Kenya has since commissioned a warehouse at the Kenya Ports Authority docks in Mombasa
