The Port of Richards Bay resumes operations after a temporary closure

Richards Bay harbor It resumed operations after putting plans in motion to resolve an environmental issue that led to its temporary closure for a day.

The port had halted all operations on Thursday after receiving a notice of compliance with an environmental order in a department within its facility.

It said in a statement on Saturday that operations had resumed on Friday night.After lifting the notice of compliance to vacate scrap tires and stocks of bulk metal waste inside the terminal buildings.”

The Transnet Port Terminals website states that Richards Bay Terminal is a “deep sea port with 13 berths, the terminal handling dry bulk ores, minerals and bulk cargo fracturing”.

In recent months, the port has faced challenges with a build-up of trucks transporting coal for export, causing significant traffic jams on the road to the facility.

In the statement issued on Saturday, the port said: “The terminals have submitted an implementation plan to the Port Authority and some of the environmental management commitments contained in the plan are already under implementation.

“Carriers are still being urged to hold off on sending more trucks until more connections are in place, and to make use of a mandatory reservation system for trucks to ensure that trucks do not call at stations at the same time.”
