Mitchell Cotts Freight Kenya
Mitchell Cotts Freight Kenya Limited is one of the most recognised and respected names in the shipping, freight forwarding, and warehousing and transport business. The organisation established itself in Kenya in 1926 when the company was set up to undertake supply of coalbunkers to ships. At the time steamships used coal as fuel. The operations of the company were later expanded to include ships agency, freight forwarding, trading activities and the corporate headquarters of the company.
