- Make sure you are not shipping prohibited items to Kenya. By law, shipping companies are supposed to inspect and verify that cargo being shipped complied with local and International Air Transportation Association (IATA) regulations. Nail polish, Cologne, Explosives and highly flammable products are prohibited by IATA.
- Package your shipment in a durable box: This will make sure the integrity of your cargo is maintained. In situations where we receive your packages from online sellers like amazon.com, we do repackage them to make sure your packages are safe and well taken care of.
- Include a manifest of your packages going to Kenya: A manifest is a simple document showing what is included in your package to be shipped by air. It should include your items name, quantity and value of your goods to be shipped to Kenya.
- Avoid shipping Prohibited Goods: We have made a list of exclusion list to guide you when preparing your shipment. In case you see items that require special documentation, we handle that part for you. Example, you will see lithium batteries in our air cargo exclusion list but we still can ship lithium batteries but special documentation needs to accompany it.

Sending Mail & Letter with USPS & Kenya Post Office (Posta): Should You Take the Enormous Risk?
We get many calls every day about people who fell into the USPS – Kenya Posta trap and either lost the entire package, got some items stolen or got extorted in Kenya to get their package.
USPS delivery seems efficient to me. It is until the USPS has sent your package and the last update/tracking point you can see is where it tells you “Package in Transit to an International Destination“.
I have been there, done that. Have lost important property documents to Kenya through the post office. Once sent a letter (mail) to my mother and she was being asked to pat with KES 2,000 to get it. Yes!
If you want to send a mail, letter or small packages to Kenya without worrying about packages getting lost or being extorted by posta, You should try our service. We deliver.
Preparing Sea/Ocean Shipment From USA to Kenya
Sea cargo shipping is mainly for heavy and bulky items. Items that would be too expensive to ship by air to Kenya. Here is how to prepare sea cargo.
- We recommend using barrels or wardrobe boxes: These give you enough room to put as many packages as you can. Wardrobe boxes are readily available in moving companies like uHaul.
- Make a manifest of your shipment: Make a list of the items you are shipping and include/attach it to your box or barrel.
