SGS Named Best in Cargo Security in Kenya’s National Road Safety Agency Awards
The National Road Safety Agency Annual Award is an award ceremony that recognizes achievement and innovation in road safety in Kenya.
The ceremony took place at the end of 2016 with various companies, distinguished for the quality of their services, receiving awards for playing a major role in improving road safety.
SGS was nominated in the hotly contested Cargo Tracking Category along with nine other approved vendors for providing Electronic Cargo Tracking System (ECTS) services under the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) Program.
SGS was voted as the Best in Cargo Security for 2016.
SGS has been established in Kenya since 1953. Under the trademark OMNISTM, SGS has been providing tracking services for cargo in Kenya and throughout the East African Region since 2012. SGS OMNIS enables automatic tracking and monitoring, reporting and protection of cargo as it is transported from origin to destination and across borders. The solution combines the latest in high-end electronic seals with sophisticated electronic cargo tracking software and SGS’s own internal expertise to secure cargo, providing complete end-to-end visibility monitoring for potential attempts of cargo tampering or diversion.
SGS OMNIS secures cargo in real time when in transit and in storage, curbing shrinkage, pilferage or petroleum cargo contamination. In addition, it also offers fleet management functions, such as vehicle route deviations, excessive dwell times and disconnection of the vehicle battery.
SGS currently provides cargo tracking services from major loading points in Kenya through to Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. SGS is also an approved vendor for the KRA ECTS Program within Kenya and by TRA in Tanzania. Compared with the same period in 2015, SGS reduced instances of cargo theft by 81% in 2016.
