Dodwell Container Terminal

Dodwell and Co. East Africa Limited is a member of the ISS group and is involved in surveyor work, cargo and container services.

Dodwells latest project has been the container terminal, which was officially opened in December 2008. The yard is fully paved and has a very high quality repair facility for repairing containers (the only one in Mombasa) and we encourage shipping lines to carry out a majority of their repairs in Mombasa, rather then in other areas of the world, where costs are significantly higher.


Dodwell container yard is situated along the Port Reitz road on the western side of the Mombasa mainland, approximately 3 Km from Mombasa port on the Kipevu entrance (Gate No.18)

The total area of the yard is 6 acres with an additional 2.67 acres, which will be developed at a later stage to make the total storage area 8.67 acres

The 6 acres already developed can store upto 3000 teus at 4 high.


The depot is equipped with:

  • 2 Sisu side loaders with a capacity to stack containers upto 5 high. A third side loader is planned for May 2009.
  • 6 tractors and 7 trailers to transport containers from the depot to the port and vice versa
  • The latest welding machines, hydraulic body jacks and welding tools for the depot workshop. Containers will be inspected and repaired as per IICL5 standards or as per in-service criteria specified by our clients.
  • CCTV in the yard to monitor container movement and security.

IT system

  • Dodwell Container yard has designed a system which will see shipping lines enjoy the benefits of downloading directly into their systems, both inward and outward container movements through and EDI program.
  • With Bluetooth technology available, our program will be able to download photographs of all damaged containers being received at the depot. These will be forwarded to the shipping lines automatically.

Dodwell workforce

Our workforce comprises of a young team of 28 staff who are well trained in the following areas
