Increased cargo volumes, Covid-19 absenteeism, and employees’ festive season leave had led to the long delays in the Durban port over the past week, according to Transnet Port Terminals (TPT).
It said in a statement on Friday morning, in response to Freight News’s questions about complaints from transporters regarding delays of up to eight hours at the Durban Container Terminal, that it had also hired additional staff to boost production at the busiest port in the country.
