The Charter establishes a permanent collaborative framework that binds the community members to specific actions, collective obligations, targets and timelines aimed at achieving efficiency in port and corridor transport logistics. The collaborative framework enables discussions, negotiations and joint planning between stakeholders from the Mombasa port and Northern Corridor community and provides a forum in which stakeholders can share and discuss their interests and coordinate their activities. The signatories are organized into six categories, depending on the nature of their responsibilities on the Charter as follows:
a) Logistics service providers
b) Cargo interveners and inspectors
c) Shippers (traders, consigners, consignees, importers and exporters)
e) Policy and oversight
f) Trade and commerce associations
g) Associate parties
h) Development agencies and other coordination and cooperation mechanisms
The Charter was signed by chief executives and directors of the signatories, who asserted their commitments to the Charter. For higher commitment and recognition, the signing was witnessed by the President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya and his Cabinet Secretary Transport, who signed as witnesses.
