Transport and logistics company, Signon Freight Ltd, has rebranded to Signon Group to expand its scope of business in the growing regional market.
Launching the new identity – including logo and corporate colours – Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Transport Dr Cyrus Njiru said logistics companies support the movement and flow of many economic transactions, and thus facilitate the growth of commerce. “Solutions from logistics companies help the government cope with the pressure brought by delays in the supply chain,” he said.
Siginon Group Managing Director Meshack Kipturgo said growing trade volumes in the East African market, spurred by regional integration activities, have increased investment in the Kenyan transport and logistics industry. “Local and international investors have invested a lot of money setting up cargo handling facilities and rolling out new freight routes. In order to handle cargo from global producers and deliver them to customers’ doorstep, Siginon Group has made this move,” said Mr Kipturgo.
Incepted in 1985, Siginon Group has been working as a logistics company under the name Siginon Freight Limited. It has been dealing with cargo, aviation, ports, as well as clearing and forwading.
Siginon Group now has three new business divisions: Siginon Aviation, Siginon Global Logistics and Siginon Terminal Operations. Siginon Commercial Manager David Lukoye said that the company is currently building a Sh1billion modern air cargo terminal on the airside of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), which is expected to be completed in 2013.
