Subsequently, we will further expand the source of Tanzania, Somalia and other countries, not only to supply high-quality food raw materials to the country, but also to promote the development of aquatic products processing industry in Kenya and other countries, and provide jobs for local residents.

Project Challenges

Coordination and professionalism: the beginning of the challenge
greenroad completed the approval of all export license documents in a very short period of time in order to start the project within the required time frame. This required excellent coordination and expertise to ensure that regulatory requirements were met.
Cold chain security: keeping dried anchovies fresh
A number of measures are taken to ensure that the dried anchovies remain at the right temperature throughout their transportation. The presence of a backup generator allows us to respond to potential power supply problems, ensuring a 24/7 supply of electricity and guaranteeing the stability of the cold chain.

Harmonizing customs processes across borders: getting through any obstacles
Customs processes across different countries are complex, but for us it was a necessary challenge. We successfully coordinated and cleared all the customs and airport links involved to ensure unimpeded transportation of goods.

Greenroad Kenya ensured the success of the dried anchovy project in Kenya with professionalism and dedication. Through efficient license approval, cold chain protection and cross-border coordination, we successfully delivered the delicious Kenyan dried anchovies to Yueyang, Hunan Province, China, providing customers with high quality service and fresh ingredients.
Against the backdrop of the 10th anniversary of the "One Belt, One Road" initiative, greenroad International Logistics has responded positively to the call to provide customers with excellent logistics supply chain solutions to meet the needs of various challenging projects. In the future, we will continue our efforts to help China-Africa cooperation develop in an all-round, multi-level and high-quality way.
