MeTL Group’s East Coast Liquid Storage Limited has operated an Inland Container Depot (ICD) and a Container Freight Station (CFS) since 2008. The two are transhipment points for export and import cargo operated jointly with the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) and in collaboration with the Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) to provide customs clearance and port logistics services for MeTL companies and other businesses.
East Coast Liquid Storage Limited offers handling and temporary storage of import/export laden and empty containers, warehousing, temporary admissions, and re-export services. Equipped with high-tech equipment and a skilled efficient team located only a kilometre from the port, ICD and CFS guarantee fast cargo movement to and from the port.
In close collaboration with our sister company, Glenrich Transportation, we provide ground transportation across Dar es Salaam, picking up and delivering high-volume cargo from our customer’s point of sale or production. Glenrich Transportation has dedicated 120 trucks to support ICD and CFS facilities’ import and export operations. While also providing on-the-spot cargo insurance solutions for clients through our insurance company, Mo Assurance.
East Coast Liquid Storage Limited processes an average volume of 1,000 import containers through its ICD monthly and an average of 1,300 export containers through its CFS i. Both facilities can process both container, loose cargo and bulk cargo shipments. MeTL plans to open the most extensive CFS facility in Dar es Salaam, in Mbagala, where we can process 5,000 containers monthly.
