Cape Town port fruit export volumes up 8%

Transnet’s Cape Town Container Terminal has increased its export volumes by 8% since the start of the deciduous fruit season, compared to the previous year. The season officially commenced in December 2022, with exports of pome fruit (apples and pears), berries, as well as table grapes and stone fruit destined for the international markets.

Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) said in a statement on Friday that exporters had shipped more than 118 381 TEUs through the CTCT, despite weather challenges of wind and fog.

It said the terminal had put recovery plans in place to mitigate delays and clear backlogs that had been created as a result of inclement weather. The terminal currently has seven vessels at anchorage and is continuing to tighten its operational plans for improved efficiency.
