Container Services Dar Es Salaam & Mombasa

We offer container services to Europe and other destinations from both Dar Es Salaam & Mombasa. We have reliable clearing agents in both ports to look after your shipment.


Import  / Export Requirements – Tanzania and Kenya

For both Tanzania and Kenya, we recommend you ship into both countries with a carnet.  You may be able to enter by land without one, however the process of shipping is much easier using one.

For vehicles that are registered in the SACU, the East African Community do allow temporary import without a Carnet de passage.

For import, we ask that the original carnet is with our local agents at least a week prior to the ship’s arrival so that they may complete the necessary customs formalities.

For export, we recommend you arrive in the city of departure a week before sailing to complete customs formalities. Customs formalities can take place a few days before the vehicle is taken to the port. Under normal circumstances the vehicle is dropped off at the port 48 hours before the vessel’s arrival.

Travel Insurance

We would strongly recommend a Travel insurance policy for travel in East Africa. Read more about Africa Travel Insurance.


We recommend booking shipping services 2-3 months before departure, however we are able to book up to 2 weeks prior to shipping, depending on availability.  Please note during public holidays, elections and other national events, customs officers in the region are usually off work, this can lead to significant delays in the shipping process, we would advise researching these prior to making a booking.
