TPT continues to strive for greater efficiency at Durban port

The Port of Durban has come a long way but it is not yet where Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) wants it to be, CE Nozipho Sithole told delegates attending the Transport Forum Special Interest Group gathering, held at the former Durban Maritime School of Excellence, this week.  “I’m not sure how many of us remember the congestion. Those were the days when you couldn’t drive on Bayhead road because there were trucks all over the place and [there were large numbers] of vessels at outer anchorage awaiting berths,” she said, adding that TPT has since reduced train and truck turnaround times at its container terminals in Durban and Richards Bay.
