Customs Clearance: How We Delivered on Our Promise to Mkopa in just 2 days


Have you ever wondered about the complex journey your gadgets take to reach your doorstep? In a world where speed and efficiency are paramount, we often take for granted the remarkable logistics feats behind the scenes. One such feat recently unfolded when our team at Globeflight/Union Green successfully cleared and delivered a massive 21-tonne shipment of phones and accessories from China to Kenya in just two days. Join us as we unveil the story of this incredible achievement, where challenges met innovation and determination, all in the name of keeping our promises to our valued client, Mkopa.

Setting the Stage: Navigating the Global Logistics Landscape

Behind every international shipment lies a labyrinthine network of logistics, customs, and regulations. The world of freight clearance is a high-stakes game where time and precision are the currency of success. In this vast landscape, Globeflight/Union Green has been navigating the currents for over 23 years, honing our expertise to perfection.

Client Profile: Mkopa’s Vision

Mkopa, a leader in sustainable connectivity solutions, approached us with a unique challenge: to deliver a colossal 21 tonnes of phones and accessories from China to Kenya within the shortest possible time frame. Their vision of connecting communities in Kenya through innovative technology was compelling, and we were eager to play our part.

The Challenge: From China to Kenya

Clearing goods through customs in any country is a meticulous process, but crossing international borders adds layers of complexity. Mkopa’s goods were coming from China, a global manufacturing hub, to Kenya, a country with its own customs procedures and regulations. The challenge was clear: safely navigate these hurdles while ensuring swift delivery.

Our Approach: A Delicate Dance of Air and Sea

To meet Mkopa’s urgent needs, we decided to employ a multi-faceted approach. We combined both air and sea freight to optimize speed and efficiency. The choice between air and sea freight was a strategic one. Air freight, with its two-day clearance, would provide the speed necessary for urgent delivery, while sea freight, with a five-day clearance, would offer a cost-effective alternative for bulk transportation.

Execution: A Symphony of Logistics

With the strategy in place, our team sprang into action. The coordination required to handle a 21-tonne shipment from a foreign country to Kenya was nothing short of a logistical symphony. Customs documentation, container loading, and secure packaging were meticulously managed.

At the heart of this operation was our team’s dedication to timeliness. In just five days, we had cleared the sea freight, expertly handling customs regulations and inspections. Meanwhile, our air freight team worked tirelessly to ensure the goods were ready for departure within two days.

Efficiency: Air Freight vs. Sea Freight

The efficiency of our approach was exemplified by the comparison between air and sea freight. Air freight, known for its speed, was instrumental in meeting Mkopa’s tight delivery deadline. The two-day clearance allowed us to expedite the process significantly. However, for larger shipments or cost-sensitive projects, sea freight’s five-day clearance could prove to be the better choice.

Results and Milestone Achievement

In the end, our hard work and dedication paid off. We successfully delivered the phones and accessories to Mkopa in just two days, surpassing their expectations and ensuring their project timeline remained on track. The satisfaction and gratitude expressed by the Mkopa team were immensely rewarding.
