By the following year, JOHANNESBURG- Transnet may have completed removing the current backlog of goods from its port in Durban.
With an anticipated 21 days until offloading, 70,000 containers are still stranded at the terminal.
According to the state-owned rail, port, and pipeline company, preparations have been made to meet this deadline.
According to Transnet, preparations have already been made to help with the backlog of goods.

It stated that getting the damaged equipment at the port, which was mentioned as one of the obstacles to the current problem, is its first step.
Acting CEO of Transnet Michelle Phillips claimed that in order to expedite the process, the government had eliminated the procurement red tape.
” Several instruction notes that previously hindered us in the procurement process have been withdrawn by the National Treasury.”
Transnet’s main priority, according to Phillips, is to get rid of this backlog as soon as possible, even though it acknowledges that the current situation has contributed to the need to maintain its equipment.
