The Kenya National Shipping Line could go out of business once the new Merchant Shipping Act becomes operational, it has been revealed.

Section 16 part (I) of the new law bars entities listed as ocean carriers from operating in any other transport logistics segment.

The company has been functioning as a forwarding and clearing agent for government-imported cargo and as a shipping consolidator for other global liners.

Once the law comes into force the shipping line would have to forego some of its duties, according to experts.

The antitrust section (16) of the law has been opposed by shipping lines because the clause excludes international companies from investing in the country.
