It takes 60-75 days to deliver but in most cases, much faster than that.
Every last Friday of the month is containers loading Friday
When do we ship out ocean freight from the USA to Kenya?
We aim to ship out all ocean freight from the USA to Kenya every last Friday of the month. All shipments must be received by the third week of the month in order to ship out the same month.
In some cases, we may ship earlier or later +/- 2 weeks based on the container status. If we’re not able to fill the container fast enough, we may add container fillers which we dispose of in Kenya at a throwaway price.
We buy such container fillers to avoid any delays and make sure we exceed our promised 90-120 days delivery time.
How do I Label my ocean freight?
All ocean freight must have the receiver’s name in Kenya. You must also indicate that such shipments are meant for ocean cargo, otherwise, they may be mistaken for air freight.
You’ll get your warehouse code in your shipping account. If you are in the US, you will need to create a shipping account and add your receiver’s name in Kenya to generate their warehouse code.
What Are Your Charges?
We charge $30 per cubic foot with a minimum charge of $300 per client, even if the package is smaller than 10 cubic feet.
That translates to $1080 per cubic meter (CBM). We however discount volume shippers as follows.
Do you offer full container shipping from the USA to Kenya?
Yes, we do.
We quote full containers assuming the shipment is in our warehouse at Carrollton, Texas.

Do you Offer Clearing in Kenya?
