The R10 million refurbishment to a second railway line into the Transnet National Ports Authority’s (TNPA) Port of PE Container Terminal is unlocking substantial business potential for the Eastern Cape. This is opening doors for OEMs such as Ford Motor Company, currently exploring logistical solutions for the export of thousands of units.
“One of the celebrated successes of the Port of PE in the past financial year was the successful export of Ford units through the Automotive Terminal. This opened greater opportunities for both the OEM and the port to collaborate on logistics solutions for the import and export of all components and units. In addition, this presented the port with an opportunity to grow its strategic positioning as an automotive hub,” said Sujit Bhagattjee, the port’s New Business Development Manager.
