Durban Container Terminal’s Pier 1 handled highest annual volumes yet

The Durban Container Terminal’s Pier 1, handled its highest annual volumes yet, having moved a total of 689,246 twenty foot equivalent units (TEU) at the end of the 2021/2022 financial year ended in March. The terminal was established in 2007 to handle projected volumes in line with contractual agreements as demand and trade increased year on year, therefore, complementing the Pier 2 Terminal.

Pier 1 is currently operating at 98% capacity with current capacity creation plans exploring the acquisition of land in the Bayhead vicinity to accommodate the overflow.

According to Acting Managing Executive Kwazi Mabaso, “The movement of containers in Durban is a story of employee resilience worth noting if you consider the plunge productivity took in the last financial year owing to the impact of the COVID19 pandemic, the KwaZulu Natal (KZN) unrest as well as the disruption to Transnet operating systems as a result of the cyberattack”. He added that the focus on efficiency enhancers like reducing safety incidents, focusing on vessel interventions, multi-skilling employees to operate different lifting equipment and training planners on best international practices contributed to the results.
