Maintenance and Operation of Ports and Harbours

South Africa’s commercial ports and harbours play a critical role in the domestic economy as enablers of trade between South Africa and its trading partners in the region and other parts of the world. Ports facilitate imports and exports and provide maritime services to international shipping traffic. Before the coronavirus pandemic, around 300 million tons of seaborne cargo moved through South African ports each year, and volumes are expected to be substantially lower this year. Transnet plays a dominant role in the operation and maintenance of South Africa’s major ports and harbours.

Coronavirus Effect

The coronavirus pandemic plunged world trade and the global maritime sector into crisis, and the unprecedented decline in domestic and global economic activity translated into sharp declines in vessel arrivals and cargo volumes. Backlogs, congestion and delays have led to additional charges and the loss of contracts. Coronavirus-related staff shortages have added to operational challenges.

Infrastructure Development

Capacity expansion at the port of Saldanha will increase its servicing capacity from ten rigs to between twenty and forty per year. Rig repair capacity expansion projects are also planned for Cape Town, Durban and Ngqura. Under Operation Phakisa, twelve proclaimed fishing harbours in the Western Cape have been designated for rehabilitation and maintenance.
