Swissport's "flower corridor"

Over 9,000 t of love blossoms travel safely through Swissport’s flower corridor, from the fields of the Kenyan highlands to Europe. In the world of flower exports, where time sensitivity and freshness are non-negotiable, Swissport takes centre stage as a key player in the complex door-to-door logistics.


400 to 500 t of cargo, 85% of which is fresh flowers, pass through Swissport's expansive 10,400 sqm cargo centre in Nairobi, Kenya every week. Volumes increase by 50-55% in the run-up to Valentine's Day.


The facility, which holds a Iata's CeivFresh certificate, ensures the safe handling of general cargo, perishables, and temperature-sensitive goods, with a particular focus on flowers - a major export from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA). (cj)
