Swift Nairobi moves to new location

Swift Nairobi moves to new location

Swift Freight International, headquartered in Dubai with 40 offices in 18 countries, recently made official the relocation of its Nairobi office to Apex Business Park, Mombasa Road, Nairobi, Kenya.

According to Swift Region Head for East and North Africa, Subin George, the new office in Nairobi boasts of a 10,000-sq ft warehouse, meant to answer the growing demand for 3PL service in Kenya.

Subin further related that Swift Nairobi office will operate under a new name—Swift Global Logistics. “Our new name signifies our commitment to further open Africa to trade worldwide by providing logical, multimodal transport solution for the continent. Our new location is only the start of better things to expect from Swift Global Logistics,” he added.

Swift Global Logistics in Kenya will continue to offer the same pioneering logistics services, such as SAM (Sea-Air Model) and Surelines, which both improve business cycles via scheduled trips to and from Africa; plus, SPL (Swift Perishable Logistics), which handles transshipment of perishable goods, particularly flowers—of which Kenya is one of the largest exporters in the world.

Swift offices in Africa are located in Burundi (Bujumbura), DR Congo (Kinshasa, Butembo, Lubumbashi), Ghana (Accra), Kenya (Nairobi, Eldoret, Mombasa), Nigeria (Lagos), Rwanda (Kigali), Senegal (Dakar), Tanzania (Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, Mwanza), Togo (Lome), Uganda (Kampala, Entebbe, Malaba) and Zambia (Lusaka, Kitwe, Ndola).
