APM Terminals has opened a new 7.3 hectare (18 acre) inland container freight station (CFS) 4 km (two and a half miles) from Kenya’s primary port of Mombasa. The new facility is one of East Africa’s largest and most technologically advanced CFS operations, with direct rail links to both the port and inland commercial and population centers of Nairobi and Kampala.
