Cargo Handling, Storage and Warehousing


2016 was a difficult year for major role players in the cargo handling, storage and warehousing sector, with Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA), reporting a year-on-year drop of 4.7% in the amount of cargo transported by sea, and SAA Cargo reporting a decrease of 17,000 tonnes in the amount of air freight handled.


The importance of Sea Freight


98% of the country’s global trade is by sea through South Africa’s ports system, which also services the shipping feeder network connecting the west and east coasts of Africa. Port operations in South Africa are under the control of two of state-owned Transnet’s divisions, with the TNPA acting as landlord, and Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) responsible for the day-to-day operations at the 16 terminals located at seven ports. According to the Transnet Integrated Annual Report for the financial year 2015/2016, the seven-year Market Demand Strategy includes an investment of R89.9bn in Transnet’s ports, representing 32.8% of the company-wide investments, primarily aimed at improving and modernising port facilities. Capital investments of R2.8bn for the TNPA and R2.9bn for TPT have been allocated for 2017.


Report Coverage


This report focuses on the loading and unloading of cargo, irrespective of the transport mode used, and the operation of storage and warehousing facilities for all kinds of goods, but excludes storage facilities operated by companies for their own use. It examines current conditions and discusses the issues, difficulties and opportunities facing the sector.
