Market Overview

Logistics are very crucial to the economic performance of every economy. Like other African countries, Kenya has structural issues with its logistical infrastructure, but its development has been aided by the ease of doing business and a welcoming political climate. In 2018 Kenya ranked 68 in the Logistics Performance Index and 61 in the East of Doing Business Index. The Kenyan logistics market has expanded greatly during the last few years, which shows that it will rise in the future.

Government programs like the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR), Kenya’s advantageous location as the entrance to East Africa, and the thriving retail and import industries were the main drivers of the boom.


By Freight Forwarding

The rise of the freight forwarding market in Kenya was significantly influenced by the F&B, FMCG, and industrial sectors in the nation, particularly for the global market. Road freight was discovered to be the most favoured mode of transportation, followed by air and sea freight, as a result of improvements in the road infrastructure. The Kenyan freight forwarding market’s top revenue source was found to be the Asia flow corridor.

By Warehousing

One of the major areas of logistics development that calls for increased funding and technological innovation is warehousing. The growth of the warehouse sector is anticipated to be aided by the introduction of automation technology and more sophisticated inventory management systems.

By (CEP) Courier, Express, and Parcel Logistics Market

Online shoppers are now seeking more practical delivery options for their packages as well as more effective return procedures. In Kenya, the majority of clients choose standard delivery over express delivery since express service is regarded as a luxury service. Due to the desire for speedier delivery services and the emergence of e-commerce, the express delivery market will expand rapidly during the forecast period.

By Third Party Logistics Market

It makes much more sense for businesses whose primary line of business is not logistics to outsource logistics contracts. The logistical requirements for Kenya’s thriving retail industry frequently depend on seasonal importation. Transportation costs make up about half of the price of goods in Kenya, making outsourcing an even more crucial function. Businesses that deal with perishable commodities and hazardous materials have complicated transportation and warehousing requirements. In order to free up resources for working capital and other immediate needs, SMEs choose to invest in physical capital.
