 Our Strategic Positioning


The position of the South Africa's port system enables it access to South-South trade, Far East trade, Europe & USA, East & West Africa regional trade. #TransnetPortTerminals


TPT is now offering container packing and unpacking 
services at 7 multi-purpose terminals
TPT has obtained 7 licenses for its multipurpose terminals namely: Richards Bay, Maydon Wharf, Durban Point
Car Terminal, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, and Saldanha.  The acquisition of these licenses for packing and unpacking of containers, agri, breakbulk and mineral bulk is an achievement and good news for small miners, traders and customers who will see a cutback in the logistics chain as it directly results in the reduction of business costs.
TPT plays a critical role in the logistics chain, facilitating cargo movement between South Africa and the rest of the world. The recent attainment of operational licenses adds value to the business operational efficiencies while serving customers and stakeholders better.

Market Demand Strategy

The South African Government has embarked on a massive infrastructure drive to boost the economy, create jobs and alleviate poverty. The ports are seen as key engines for economic growth and Transnet’s Market Demand Strategy (MDS) will see the company invest R300 billion on port and rail capital projects over the next seven years. The MDS is largely aimed at building freight capacity to support South Africa’s economic growth and position South Africa as a regional transhipment hub for Sub-Saharan Africa.
